The accused, Qamar Abbas, was a resident of Naya Bazar, Railway Colony, they said.
"Police got a tip-off regarding Abbas on Friday, following which a trap was laid near the Hanuman Mandir, Yamuna Bazar and the accused was arrested at around 7:40 pm," Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Monika Bhardwaj said.
Four country-made pistols and 18 live cartridges were seized from his possession, the police said.
