Speaking to the media, Bhullar said in order to conduct free and fair election, the police have made list of trouble makers and preventive action was taken against them.

He said around 51% of licensed arms were deposited with the police and the respective gun houses in the city by now. He said those who would not deposit the arms by April 5, stern action would be taken against them.

He said many license holders had also approached the scrutinising committee for keeping the arms because of threat perceptions they had. He said a final decision on it would be taken by the committee soon.
