UP ATS busts a gang of arms smugglers, two are arrested

After arresting two people on Saturday, the Uttar Pradesh Police’s Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) claimed to have busted a gang involved in supplying Azamgarh and adjoining districts with arms smuggled from other states.

Acting on a tip-off, the ATS targeted Ramshabd Yadav and Sanjay Yadav, who were involved in the sale and purchase of illegal arms from other states, an official statement said.

”On March 18 (Saturday), the ATS field squad in Azamgarh arrested Ramshabd Yadav and his associate Sanjay Yadav who were bringing illegal arms from Madhya Pradesh. As many as 10 illegal .32 caliber pistols, two live cartridges, ammunition, two mobile phones, a car and Rs 2,700 cash were recovered from them,” the ATS said in a statement.

A FIR has been registered against the arrested accused under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Arms Act. While 31 cases are registered against Ramshabd at various police stations in Azamgarh and Mau, one is registered against Sanjay, he said.
