A total of four foreign-made pistols, 28 live cartridges, two vehicles (1 Scorpio and 1 Honda City), seven police uniforms, among other things, have been recovered from their possession.

"It was learnt that all of them are active shooters of notorious gangsters Lawrence Bishnoi and Goldy Brar gang, and had come to Gurugram to execute a major incident of robbery and kidnapping. As part of their plan, Joginder had to disguise as a police inspector while other members would wear police uniforms and carry out the crime in police uniform.
