Abohar, November 8

The Rajasthan Police claim to have foiled an attempt to smuggle Madhya Pradesh-made weapons meant to be supplied to gangsters in Punjab.

Bikaner SP Prahlad Singh Krishnia said Onkar Kalia (31) of Dasuya in Hoshiarpur was yesterday arrested carrying eight pistols and 16 magazines in a bag.

The SP said Kalia was travelling in a bus coming from Jodhpur. A joint district special squad team led by DSP Ishwer Singh and Gangashehar police station in charge Bhola Ram stopped the bus near the Udayramsar bypass on the highway and arrested Kalia on a tip-off. During initial interrogation, Kalia claimed he had gone to Jodhpur to arrange weapons for further supply to some gangs in Punjab. He also revealed names of some of his associates. The police said a few days ago, some criminals from Jodhpur had flashed photos and videos of weapons on the social media. Kalia approached them for supply of arms to gangsters in Punjab. — OC
