CHANDIGARH: In a major breakthrough, the Haryana Police special task force on Tuesday arrested two men who are suspected to be involved in the murder of a youth Congress leader last year.

Acting on a tip-off that the gangsters were plotting a big crime, Sunil, alias Lala, and Rakesh, alias Pradhan, were arrested in Jhajjar district.

Sunil and Rakesh were carrying a cash reward of Rs 1 lakh and Rs 50,000 respectively, a police officer said.
