Mumbai: The state anti-terrorism squad (ATS) on Sunday arrested three persons who were wanted in several cases, including murder, bank robbery and the recent firing incident on train in Nahur among others. 

    Those arrested were Shiva Shetty, Sairam Gangipelli and Guddu Shaikh, alias Munna. The ATS team comprising senior inspector Sukhlal Varpe, Ninad Sawant and Yogesh Chavan with their staff laid a trap in front of Reliance Energy office in Kandivli (W) and caught them with a pistol, one revolver, a hand 
gun machine and 10 live cartridges. They have been booked under the Arms Act. “We have arrested these accused who were wanted in a series of cases. Their interrogation is on,” said Rakesh Maria, ATS chief. The police said 22-year-old Munna was involved in 24 criminal cases, Shetty (20) in 12 cases and Gangipelli was involved in 12 cases. 

    On September 16, 2012, Shetty along with the other accused had followed Armogham Kounder in Kalwa and stabbed him with choppers for more than 45 times. Shetty was allegedly seeing Kounder’s daughter and the deceased had objected to this. On October 7, 2013 the trio had attacked Mogham Shetty with choppers over personal enmity. In December 2012, they looted gold worth Rs 15.96 lakh from a jewellery shop at Kanjurmarg, said the police.
