A colleague of mine told me that the railing shown in the video was of our police station area. We also found that the name Rahul written on the hand of the person brandishing the pistol. Hours later we nabbed them."

He further said that along with the pistol, police also recovered three live cartridges from the accused. the motorcycle used in the video has also been confiscated by the police.
