Ghaziabad: The local administration ordered
to check the records of arms and ammunitions in all police
stations in the district in the wake of two CRPF jawans
arrested for allegedly supplying weapons to Naxals.

District Magistrate R Ramesh Kumar asked all Sub
Divisional Magistrates to check the record of arms and
ammunitions available in police stations and police line.

The probe will be conducted within a week, he added.

The Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) on April 30
had arrested four people, including two CRPF jawans, in the
state.

The arrest came after STF received a tip-off that weapons
used in Dantewada massacre, in which 76 security personnel
were killed by Naxals, where sold to the ultras by CRPF
personnel.

The STF carried out searches in Moradabad, Rampur and
Jhansi and arrested Vinod Paswan and Dinesh Singh of the CRPF.
