Maha: History-sheeter held, MD drug worth Rs 10 lakh and two country-made weapons recovered

A 34-year-old history-sheeter was arrested from Nalasopara in Palghar district of Maharashtra, and MD drugs worth Rs 10 lakh and two country-made weapons were recovered from him, police said on Friday. 

The accused planned to use the weapons to eliminate a group of persons who had fired at him in February 2021, an official of the Crime Unit-II (Vasai) of the Mira Bhayandar-Vasai Virar (MBVV) police commissionerate said.

“During the night patrolling on December 11, a police team spotted a man moving in a suspicious manner in Nalasopara. Sensing trouble, the man started running away, but the police team caught him,” senior inspector Shahuraj Ranavare of the crime unit said.
