Jodhpur Police have arrested eight people including a juvenile from various parts of the city and seized 18 pistols, 21 live cartridges and two magazines from their possession. Police Commissioner Prafulla Kumar said on Friday that informers were activated and monitoring of those who bought illegal weapons at a local level was initiated, after receiving information about the supply of illegal country-made arms in the Jodhpur division.
