Jabalpur: Three persons were arrested on Sunday for allegedly dragging a differently abled person by tying him to a car in Jabalpur on Friday.
Police have recovered weapons, including a pistol, a country-made revolver, cartridges, a crude bomb and a sword from their possession. Police said action will be taken against them under the National Security Act.
The accused were arrested for attempt to murder and charges under the Arms and Explosives Act. They were identified as Devendra Baidehi, Anil Sahu and Sanjay Sen, Garha Police Station in-charge JCM Chandel told reporters.
Ratan Singh, father of the 23-year-old victim Ajay alias Ajju Thakur, said all the three accused were his son's friends. He said that last year on February 16, due to an alleged accidental firing, Ajju had suffered serious injuries in one of his leg following which it was amputated.
All of them had then assured the 23-year-old to bear the expenses of his medical treatment but later they refused. The victim then gave a statement to the police against them in the case of accidental firing and that had ended their friendship.
