The Moga police on Monday arrested three persons who attacked a police party. SSP Harmanbir Singh revealed that they recovered a .315 bore pistol, 5 live cartridges including an AK-47 assault rifle from them.

He said on December 5 at around 11.30 pm, Sub-Inspector Major Singh along with Home Guard jawan Sukhwinder Singh had gone to attend an emergency call at Jalalabad (east) village. On their way back, they saw 4-5 unidentified persons and one of them was wearing an Army uniform.
