Ammunition unit smashed

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: An illegal ammunition-manufacturing unit has been unearthed in neighbouring Ghaziabad by the Crime Branch of the Delhi police. The police have arrested a middle-aged man and claim to have recovered 175 live rounds of .315 bore, raw material and some equipment from the unit.

Police said a special team was recently tipped off about the unit allegedly being run by Irshad Ali at Loni. A decoy customer was sent to strike a deal with Irshad for 100 cartridges. Irshad allegedly asked the decoy to receive the consignment near the Seelampur metro railway station on Monday. He was overpowered as soon as he arrived. The cartridges were allegedly recovered from a bag.
