As covers have been damaged, the details of the bullets cannot be determined. However, it has been identified that they are 0.22 rifle kind bullets. These are mostly possessed by those who learn to use gun. But those having license can only possess 50 bullets at a time. As there are 266 bullets, the chance of bullet training can be negated, while the chance of illegal possession cannot be ruled out. Similarly, rifle clubs involved in giving training session cannot hand over bullets to individuals.

From the land, the police had seized a round-shaped plywood sheet that can be used for giving training for shooting. However, as its a residential area, the possibility of conducting training session is less probable. Police suspect that the perpetrators behind this might have discarded the bullets out of the fear of being caught. The officials will probe whether the perpetrators were in search of a location for training sessions.

The cops have been retrieving the CCTV visuals in the region near the plot to get more clues about the perpetrators.

The terror angle in the case will also be probed.
