Hubballi: If you are constructing a house, or building a structure, then you need to be careful. The Hubballi Rural Police arrested two people on the outskirts of Hubballi for allegedly transporting steel bars stolen from a construction site.
The accused have been identified as Basappa Haranshikhari and Peersab Kolkar, and the police have seized around Rs 85,000 worth of steel bars and Rs 5 lakh worth of a Tata Intra vehicle.
