A-62-year-old man was arrested for allegedly supplying ammunition illegally to criminals based in Delhi-NCR and Punjab, police said Saturday.
Amarlal, a native of Abohar in Punjab and residing in Patel Nagar, was arrested on Friday at Sonia Vihar Pushta road near MCD Khatta here.
A total of 1,000 live cartridges of .32 pistol, 1,000 live cartridges of .315 pistol and Rs 25,000 were recovered from his possession, he said.
During interrogation, Amarlal disclosed that he used to get the ammunition at a cost of Rs 125-150 per cartridge from a known gun house owner at Shahbad in Ambala, Haryana, and sold them to criminals for Rs 200-250 per cartridge, Naik said.
He has been supplying the ammunition illegally to criminals since 2002, the DCP said.
He then started his own gun house in Abohar but suffered losses, the DCP said
Naik said Amarlal later began selling ammunition illegally to criminals and also helped people get fake arms licenses.
He was first arrested by the CBI in a fake arms license case in 2002 and later on by local police in the Arms Act cases, said the officer.
Further investigation is underway, police said.
