The Walther P88 is a semiautomatic pistol developed by German company Walther. Its main feature is a high-capacity double-stacked magazine designed for military and law enforcement use. The P88 was succeeded by the Walther P99 in 1997.
A 12-member STF team headed by two deputy SP’s led the operation against Asad and Mohd Ghulam, the two criminals who were caught on CCTV shooting at Umesh Pal openly, without fear.
