AHMEDABAD: The Gujarat Anti-Terrorist Squad has arrested two persons, convicted here in different murder cases, from Noida in Uttar Pradesh where they were hiding after jumping parole.

Based on a tip-off, the Gujarat ATS nabbed the two convicts, Atul Kahar and Sanjay Yadav, from their hideout in Noida and brought them here on Monday, a release issued by the ATS said.
