The police intercepted the bike-borne accused during a checking drive during which the men opened fire at the police team. The cops also resorted to retaliatory firing, and arrested the duo.

He further said that nine cases have already been registered against Ateeb. There are many cases lodged against him in Barabanki also. Rehan, who was involved in the latest loot incident, has also been arrested. Police have also recovered two 315-bore guns and a Pulsar bike used in the incident.

On May 22, the arrested accused had barged into a ration shop and looted 20,000, several kilograms of wheat and other ration items before fleeing the spot. The incident happened in broad daylight in Asrana village under Itaunja police station limits on Wednesday. The bike-borne men also shot multiple rounds of bullets to create an atmosphere of terror.
