To a question on whether the police is planning to serve notices on some persons said to be the associates of the Dhalasamant brothers, the DCP said the police is collecting information from the people and taking their statements about the criminal antecedents of these persons who are at large. If police gets conclusive evidence against them, they will be arrested.

Talking about the investigation, he said it is nearing completion.

Asked what steps the commissionerate police had taken for confiscation of properties of 15 criminals of the Dhalasamant gang, Arora said the police had already initiated the process. “We are trying to arrest them as soon as possible. If these people are not arrested within the specified time frame, action will be initiated against them as per law,” he pointed out.
