Mumbai, Jan 12 (PTI) Maharashtra's Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) has arrested three persons for alleged possession of firearms and cash in the western suburb of Andheri here, an official said on Tuesday.

Acting on a tip-off, the ATS' Juhu unit laid a trap at Andheri on Sunday and intercepted a car, in which firearms were found, the official said.

At least two pistols, live rounds and cash of Rs 3 lakh were recovered from three occupants of the car, he said.

All three accused, who are residents of Gujarat, may have links to a hawala racket, the official said.
