The suspects have been identified as Gagandeep Singh, alias Gaagi, and Gurpreet Singh, alias Gopi, both residents of Kingra village in Dabwali of Sirsa district. They were arrested near Dara Studio in Jujhar Nagar, Mohali.

Two .32 pistols were recovered from them along with eight cartridges and a Scorpio vehicle. A case under Sections 25(7) and 8 of the Arms Act has been registered at the Balongi police station.
