The police claimed to have busted two gangs involved in several cases of loot and robberies. The police have recovered several sharp weapons from them.

The persons arrested by the Daba police have been identified as Arvinder Singh, alias Amna (21), a resident of Guru Gobind Singh Nagar; Sonu (18) of Daba; Rahul (18) of Gurga Nagar; and Prince (20) of New Janta Nagar.

Additional DCP (Zone 2) Sandeep Garg said the gangsters had been indulging in hooliganism in the Daba area and had literally created their terror among residents. “They recently looted a man at Jaspal Nagar in broad daylight. Residents dare not come forward to file complaints against them,” Garg added.

The police recovered a sword, a knife and other sharp weapons from their possession.

Meanwhile, the police nabbed Dalip Pandey (23), who was wanted in three criminal cases registered against him at the Daba, Moti Nagar and Shimlapuri police station.
