Shillong: Four persons who were allegedly
involved in highway robbery were arrested with arms here.

Additional SP Vivek Syiem today said Azad Ali,
Dhanbahadur Rai, Deepak Chetri and Pynshai Rani were arrested
in raids being carried out since last night in various parts
of the city.

An Italian-made pistol, some rounds of ammunition and
two mobile sets were seized from them.

Syiem said the criminals had attacked a number of
truck drivers and looted cash and valuables from them in
various places of East Khasi Hills, Jaintia Hills, Ri Bhoi and
West Khasi Hills districts.

Two cases were filed by the truckers this month after
attacks on the truckers in and around Shillong.

The Assam Petroleum Mazdoor Union had met the deputy
commissioner of East Khasi Hills earlier this week and had
threatened a strike if the police failed to nab the criminals
who had become a terror.
