    Aas Mohammad was arrested yesterday while Azim was arrested earlier this week, the police said.

    Two carbine, 50 pistols and as many as cartridges were recovered from their possession by the Special Cell of Delhi Police. The accused were involved in supplying arms to Delhi-based criminals for the last four-five years.
