Surveillance was mounted to develop the information about the members of this syndicate. Inspector Shiv Kumar and Jitender Mavi got a tip off and a team was formed under the supervision of ACP Attar Singh which led to the arrest of the duo. The accused were held in the evening of August 22 from Modi Mill bus stop when they came to deliver the consignment,” said Singh.
