He was searching for a man who had been caught on camera, brandishing a gun and bullying villagers.

“A video of the same had also gone viral on social media, following which, the sub-inspector and Patara outpost in-charge Surendra Prasad Yadav, along with a team, raided the village to arrest the accused,” said Patel.
