The police have also recovered 18 looted mobile phones, a country made pistol and three live cartridges from their possession.On sustained interrogation, Kartar admitted his involvements in the robberies. He also disclosed that they used to sell the looted property to Sumit, 19, a resident of Pochanpur village.

His other aides were arrested later. “Further investigation is on to find out their previous involvements and to link the same with stolen property. Around 20 cases of robbery are likely to be worked out,” Kumar said.
