Sambhal (UP), Apr 12 (PTI) An illegal arms factory was busted and two men, allegedly running it, were arrested in Uttar Pradesh's Sambhal district, an official said on Monday.

A gun, 12 country-made pistols, eight semi-built country-made pistols, cartridges and machines used in the manufacturing of arms were also seized during a raid conducted in the Hayatnagar police station area late on Sunday, Superintendent of Police (SP) Chakresh Mishra said.

'This is a big haul by the police as these illegal arms could have been used to threaten voters in the ongoing panchayat polls,' he added.
