UP: Wanted criminals arrested

Shamli: Two wanted criminals, carrying a bounty of Rs 50,000 each, were arrested in Uttar Pradesh’s Shamli.

Both the criminals, who have been identified as Sanjay Bhati and Anil Bhati, were arrested yesterday by the Uttar Pradesh Police and are accused of killing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shiv Kumar Yadav.
