Local reports have claimed that the station in-charge Ripudman Singh received information that Naseem and Waseem were standing near the Hazari nahar bridge and were planning to flee to an unknown destination. As a result a force was rushed to the spot and the two were successfully apprehended. They were brought in front of a court in the evening and from there, were sent to the jail.
