"He was interrogated and disclosed that he has been supplying illicit arms/ammunition to members of the Lawrence Bishnoi-Kala Jathedi gang for the past six months at the behest of his USA-based associate namely Dilpreet Singh of Punjab," Delhi Police submitted.
"Recently Dilpreet Singh told him that his criminal contact Goldy Brar had asked to supply a huge quantity of arms and ammunition to the syndicate of Lawrence Bishnoi-Kala Jathedi gang," the police said.
"Therefore he procured 25 pistols and 50 live cartridges along with two spare magazines from Burhanpur, MP which were recovered by the police. The recovered weapons were to be given to the members of the Lawrence Bishnoi-Kala Jathedi gang in Delhi and Punjab," the police added.
According to Delhi Police, on disclosure of accused Mukand Singh permission to interrogate the accused Lawrence Bishnoi was obtained from this court and accordingly on May 26, accused Lawrence Bishnoi was interrogated in Mandoli Jail.
