The car which reportedly smuggled weapons was also recovered from the madarsa. As per Amar Ujala report, the car had ‘Shiv Sena’ written on it.

According to police, the madarsa also operated as a ‘hikmat’ (a place where a hakim prescribes medicines). The illegal weapon smugglers would come pretending to be patients. No one suspected that the ‘patients’ were actually arms smugglers.
