Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIA) staff arrested four people for possession of two illegal weapons and six rounds of cartridges.

The accused, identified as Sanjay Kumar and Rahul of Ekta Colony, Balongi, Parshottam Kumar of Ranjit Singh Nagar, Kharar, and Shiva of Guru Nanak Colony, Balongi, have been sent for police arrest.

CIA Inspector Shiv Kumar said the four were arrested while on their way to commit a crime. “Their interrogation will show their main cause of roaming in the neighborhood with weapons,” he said.

Police had placed a blockade on Landran Road, near Bhuru crossing, after a tip-off. The suspects were arrested on the spot, but not before attempting to flee in a Verna car.
