Silchar, Oct 31: Two persons, in the guise of passengers attempting to run away with a car along the Silchar airport have been apprehended by Cachar police on Sunday.

Sources informed that the two persons had rented a cab from Park road area in the town for going to the airport at Kumbhirgram. On the way, they held the driver at gunpoint asking for the keys of the car from him.
