"On April 5, some criminals had shot at and injured a scrap-iron dealer Moti Chand at Ulidih thana area of Mango. Ever since that incident, the police were trying to detect the case. Incidentally, the police got a tip off that a gang of criminals was hatching a conspiracy to commit some crime by assembling at a place in Gadra under Parsudih thana on Friday night. Acting on the tip off, a police party raided the place and arrested eight criminals. It was after these arrests were made that the police interrogated those arrested and made further arrests in Govindpur and Mango during which a total 14 criminals were arrested, " said Senior SP, M.Tamil Vanan.
