MATHURA: After a brief exchange of fire, police nabbed a man who had allegedly threatened to blow up a temple here, an official said on Tuesday.

Acting on a tip-off, a police team arrested Ajai alias Ajju Rajaura from Jait forest area in Vrindavan on Monday, Superintendent of Police (SP) Ashok Kumar Meena said.

The accused, Rajaura, sustained a bullet injury in his leg and is undergoing treatment at a hospital, the SP said, adding a country-made pistol, few live cartridges and a motorcycle were recovered from his possession.
