Three members of two bike smuggling gangs were arrested in an operation of the Coochbehar Police with fifteen two-wheelers in their possession.
The names of the arrested trio has been stated as Ripan Rai, Jainal Hossain and Arpan Sarkar, all of who are residents of Pundibari in Coochbehar.
District Superintendent of Police, Dr. Bholanath Pandey, shared the news at a press conference that had been called today. He shared that the police had received information that bike-smuggling gangs were active in the area; which is why two teams had been formed of the Kotwali Police and the Pundibari Police.
The teams successfully nabbed the three accused. Ripan Rai and Jainal Hossain were found with five motorcycles while Arpan Sarkar had nine motorcycles and a scooty with him.
The trio has now been taken on remand and the case is being investigated.
