Ambala, July 28

The district police have launched a special drive to crack a whip on those possessing illegal arms and ammunition.

The crackdown, which was launched on July 1, has yielded desired results with the arrest of 18 persons. Twelve illegal pistols, a sword and five live cartridges were recovered from the accused in less than a month.

Superintendent of Police (SP) Abhishek Jorwal said the district police had set up checkposts in different parts of the district to check the movement of suspected and anti-social elements. “The special focus was on illegal weapons and ammunition.”

The SP said 13 cases had been registered under various sections of the Arms Act in different parts of the district in the month of July.

The district police chief appealed to the residents to keep an eye on the movement of suspected and anti-social elements in their vicinity, and report such cases to the nearest police station or post to maintain the law and order situation in the district.
