A team was immediately sent to the area. Police found the other two accused were also there. The four, who came on separate two wheelers, were all arrested," said DCP Ranjan.

During, interrogation, it was revealed that in July, Aman along with his associate Mukhtar had opened fire on one Kapil in the area Bindapur.
