The Ghaziabad Police has arrested four members of a gang allegedly involved in trafficking fake drugs in the city, an official said on Sunday.

The four were arrested from near the railway station here following a tip-off, he added.

The arrested gang members have been identified as Shreepal (45), Mukesh (33), Shavej (23) and Punit Mittal (33), DCP (City) Nipun Agarwal said.
