CHANDIGARH, Punjab—After adding the sections 25 and 30 of Arms Act in an FIR registered against Sidhu Moosewala and six police cops including a DSP, the Punjab police has claimed that it was conducting raids to arrest them. Notably, Sidhu Moosewala and six other police cops were booked after a video of cops giving training of AK-47 to Sidhu Moosewala had gone viral over social media on May 4.

Interacting with media, SP Gurmeet Singh informed that special teams have been formed to conduct raids for arresting the accused. “We are conducting a thorough investigation into this case under the supervision of Patiala IG Jatinder Singh Aulakh and no one will be spared for violation of law,” he added.

Interestingly, the trainers of Sidhu Moosewala in this video are Punjab police cops and the AK-47 rifle being used in this video is said to be a service rifle of cops.
