Jalandhar: Police on Saturday claimed to have busted an inter-state gang of gun-runners with the arrest of one person in this connection.
   
Jangli Shah, a resident of Bhagalpur district in Bihar, was arrested near Kartarpur town yesterday and 10 illegal pistols were recovered from his possession, Jalandhar (Rural) SSP Y S Hayer told reporters here.
    
The illegal firearms were manufactured in Bihar and were being smuggled into the district, he said. "During the past few months, we have recovered 80 illegal weapons manufactured in Munger district of Bihar," he said.
   
Shah purchased the illicit weapons at low rates from Bihar and sold them at much higher rates in Punjab, the SSP said.
