Pistols were brought through train

Pistol reached from Khargor to Jaipur and from Jaipur to Shivpuri
SP Raghuvansh Singh Bhadauria told that Gabbar Rajak is a resident of Karera town. This accused was involved in arms smuggling for a long time. Gabbar told that he works for Bhagirath Sharma, a resident of Jaipur, Rajasthan. Bhagirath Sharma smuggles pistols and Katto from Khargone to different places. Earlier, along with Bhagirath Sharma had also gone to Khargone to collect arms consignment. Bhagirath, a resident of Jaipur, does many black works like prostitution to arms supply.
In lieu of supplying weapons in the area, I also used to get huge profits, due to this, I was working with Bhagirath Sharma for many years, along with Bhagirath Sharma, there are other people like me who supply weapons in Gwalior, Shivpuri Guna, Ashoknagar. We do.
Superintendent of Police Raghuvansh Singh Bhadauria said that a case has been registered against both the accused under the Arms Act. Both the accused are being interrogated about other arms smugglers and the main accused. Soon others will also be arrested.
