Two men who allegedly shot and injured two Gau Raksha Dal volunteers last month were arrested late Wednesday night, said Gurgaon Police. The shooting took place on June 25 morning when six volunteers of the group were attempting to confront alleged beef transporters on the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway.
Police identified the arrested men as Javed and Iklash. They were on a motorbike which was accompanying the vehicle suspected to be transporting beef and had shot at the volunteers, said police. While one Gau Raksha Dal volunteer sustained injuries on his lower abdomen, the other was shot in the hand.
Police nabbed the two men following a tip-off that they would be at Indri Mod, Sohna, said sources. The two accused were involved in various criminal activities, the sources added. According to police, six stolen vehicles were seized from the accused. “They admitted to being behind crimes in several states, including Rajasthan and Haryana, and have at least 20 FIRs lodged against them in different states,” said Subhash Boken, PRO of Gurgaon Police, Thursday.
