Nansel revealed that two suspects were apprehended while attempting to acquire additional ammunition and firearms, maintaining that the law enforcement’s proactive approach to curbing criminal activities led to the success of the operation.

Most of the suspects have reportedly confessed to their involvement in the crimes and are actively cooperating with the police.

The police also paraded four others for suspected involvement in cult activities. Four guns, 11 rounds of ammunition, and a vehicle were among the exhibits recovered from criminal hideouts.
