New Delhi: A YouTuber who purchased a country-made pistol to make reels has been arrested by the Dwarka district police along with his juvenile friend.
The main accused has been identified as Shivanand, a resident of Mahavir Enclave in Dwarka.
The DCP of Dwarka, M. Harsha Vardhan, said that on June 21, the police in Bindapur area spotted the two youth on a two-wheeler riding on the service lane without wearing helmet.
