Calcutta, Dec. 10: One person was arrested as police foiled an attempt by two miscreants to hijack a taxi near the toll plaza on Vidyasagar Setu around 8 pm.
Half-an-hour later, four armed youths took a lift in a hired car of the CMDA on the EM Bypass and forced the driver at gunpoint to drive towards Garia. However, local youths stopped the car when it hit an autorickshaw at Boral. The miscreants fled, hurling bombs. The driver was detained.
