Two persons were arrested in Gandhinagar for allegedly assaulting a police team when they were stopped during a night curfew period.
According to police, two accused Harsh Shah and Trisha Shah, who are siblings and residents of Sargasan in Gandhinagar, were intercepted at Pramukhnagar intersection in Sargasan on Monday around 11:30 pm in their Wagon R car.
