They didn’t rule out the possibility of more arrests in the near future. The kingpin – identified as Battilal Meena – is still at large

Three detained men were being brought to Jaipur till the reports last came in. Sources said that they would be interrogated here. The SOG officials are likely to disclose their identity after their questioning.

The trio was initially quizzed at Mantown police station in Sawai Madhopur before the SOG team left for Jaipur with them.
