The police have arrested two persons, including an alleged arms smuggler, in separate incidents and recovered two pistols from their possession.

Those arrested were identified as Mani Masih of Dera Baba Nanak, Gurdaspur, and Harwinder Singh, alias Shiva, of Himmatpura.

Sub-inspector Paramjit Singh from the Kotwali police station said they received a tip-off that an arms smuggler was coming from the Hall Gate side to Town Hall. Following the information, the police intercepted Mani Masih, who was riding a bike. During his search, the police recovered a .32 bore Beretta pistol with made in Italy written on it. Masih could not produce any documents regarding the weapon. Later, it was found that he had come to sell the pistol.
