The police recovered two pistols, an air gun, fake currency notes of total face value of Rs 1.40 lakh, nine live bullets and a Scorpio vehicle from the accused.

The police identified the arrested persons as Vishwanath Mallappa Karadigudda alias Tissyya (27), Prashant Lakshman Badiger (26), Praveen Yallappa Angadi (23) of Hemanth Nagar, Rakesh Rajansa Baddi (27) of Sangam Colony, Kushal Mohansa Habib (30) and Kallappa Adiveppa Dalawai (33) of Unakl.

Hubli-Dharwad Commissioner of Police Ramachandra Rao stated the gang was involved in various robbery, and other criminal cases.
