It was reported that the gun that was used by Shahrukh was procured from Bihar’s Munger and is of 7.65 bore. Navbharat Times had quoted sources in the Delhi police as saying the weapon was illegally obtained via a person working at the weapons manufacturing factory in Munger. The police believe that a racket involved in illegal arms smuggling out of the Munger factory and their sale can be busted if they arrest the person who sold the gun to Shahrukh.

The police are also searching for a person in Meerut who is also involved in supplying and procurement of illegal weapons. The third person is the man in UP’s Shamli who had sheltered Shahrukh after the Delhi riots.

Media sources have also revealed that the police have so far registered over 700 FIRs and have arrested over 2400 people connected with the Delhi riots. Apart from that over 49 cases of illegal weapons and other charges related to the Arms Act have been registered. The police have also conducted over 283 meetings with local peace committees after the violent riots.
