The accused have been identified as Yash (24), Rahul Tiwari (23), Sonu (22), and Chander Prakash (24), they said.
During the investigation, it was found that Rehbar, a resident of Jagatpuri here, was having enmity with two of the accused Yash and Tiwari. Raids were conducted and they were nabbed from the Shastri Nagar area. Later, their two accomplices were also arrested, the DCP said.
