Acting on a tip-off, a team of Crime Branch arrested Prateek Shaukeen (36), Waseem (28), and Lalit Kumar (43), in Paschim Puri last evening, DCP(Crime) Joy Tirkey said. On checking, a US-made Glock pistol along with 10 live cartridges were found in Prateek's possession.
Waseem was carrying a 7.65 bore pistol with two live rounds while Lalit was carrying a 7.65 bore pistol with two live rounds, he said.
