Five grenades and three AK-47 rifles were also recovered from Davinder's residence, who will be facing anti-terror charges and those relating to the Arms and Explosives Act. Inspector General of Police, Vijay Kumar, confirmed the arrest. "Yesterday during an operation in Sophian, one Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) was arrested along with two wanted Hizbul Mujahideen militants, while they were travelling together in a vehicle on National Highway."
