Four men have been arrested on charges of firing outside a shop in Farukhnagar town and later demanding Rs 50 lakh from its owner, Gurugram Police said on Monday.

Accused Rahul, Vijay alias Pankaj, and Mannu from different villages in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut district were arrested on Sunday by a Farukhnagar Crime Branch team led by Suresh Kumar. The fourth accused Paramjeet was arrested from Juraula village near Farukhnagar on Monday.
