Jaipur/Al­war: A day af­ter a Haryan­abased gang raided Behror po­lice sta­tion in Al­war and fled with their leader Vikram Singh alias Papla, Bhi­wadi po­lice on Satur­day claimed to have ar­rested two ac­cused and de­tained sev­eral oth­ers for their al­leged in­volve­ment in the crime.

DGP Bhu­pen­dra Singh said the two ar­rested were be­ing quizzed and a se­nior ASP of the Spe­cial Op­er­a­tions Group has been ap­pointed as the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of­fi­cer (IO) in the case.

The gang, which was armed with two AK-47 ri­fles and au­to­matic pis­tols, rained bul­lets as they freed Vikram from the po­lice cus­tody in a dare­devil raid on Fri­day. Ear­lier on Satur­day, Singh held a meet­ing with se­nior of­fi­cers of Haryana po­lice even as gang­ster Vikram re­mained trace­less.

Ad­di­tional DGP (Crime) BL Soni told TOIthat 15 shoot­ers had stormed the po­lice sta­tion. Bar­ring five, all have been iden­ti­fied and their na­tive ad­dresses tracked down. “We have gath­ered vi­tal in­for­ma­tion about the re­main­ing five and ze­roed in on peo­ple who can iden­tify them,” he said.
