Besides vehicles, two star pistols, revolvers & other weapons were seized from the spot, said DCP (Special Cell), Pramod Singh Kushwah.
The Special Cell sleuths had been keeping an eye on a farmhouse in Chhatarpur for the last two to three months since it was suspected that the gang members would be coming there.
