The module searched about the features of weapons online. “Bihar police has tightened control on the illegal firearms units in Gaya and other parts of the state. Earlier, advanced weapons and duplicates of German weapons were available in Bihar. Now, the business has been controlled by the police and they did not get the required weapons in Bihar,” the source said.

As the module failed to buy modern weapons they purchased country<-made firearms from Nanded. The terrorists were planning to escape from the scene of attacks using firearms. “They had practised firing using air guns and pellets. They procured live rounds of 9mm pistols thinking that they will be able to buy pistols soon,” the source said.
