The Division-A police have nabbed two persons and recovered a pistol and stolen bike from them.

They have been identified as Gursimranjit Singh, alias Simu Umarpuria, and Karandeep Singh of the Maqboolpura area. They were held from near the inter-state bus terminus. The police got a tip-off that the duo were drug addicts and used to steal vehicles and sell these to get money to procure drugs.

Following specific inputs, they were signalled to stop at a checkpoint near the bus stand. They tried slipping away but were nabbed by the police. When asked about the documents of the bike, they could not produce the same, nor could give any satisfactory answer. They were arrested and produced in court, which sent them to police remand.

During interrogation, the police recovered a .32 country-made pistol from Gursimranjit. The police said Gursimranjit had two murder bids and robbery cases registered against him at Vallah and Ranjit Avenue police stations here and has two more cases in Ajnala police station as well.
