As many as 89 accused were arrested in the last one month on the charge of illegal possession or supply of firearms,” Sangwan said.
“During investigations in a majority of cases, bad characters, history-sheeters, proclaimed offenders, bail-jumpers were, by and large, found involved in crimes in the district.
