New Delhi: Before Independence Day celebrations on August 15, Delhi Police’s special cell today arrested a woman and seized 14 pistols and 14 magazines from her. According to Delhi Police, these arms were meant for supply in Delhi-NCR area.
The woman, an alleged arms smuggler, was arrested from Delhi’s Shastri Park area and has been identified as Mobai. According to police, the woman belongs to Madhya Pradesh and has been allegedly trading in illegally acquired weapons for the last 15 years.
