The raids were conducted at Singh’s ancestral Nadawan village which falls under Barh sub-division in Patna district. Police said the weapon was covered with carbon sheet so as to dodge the metal detectors.

Singh, however, describes the entire as a part of political conspiracy hatched by his adversaries and alleges that the weapons not belonging to him were being shown as having recovered from his home.

He said the raids were conducted in his absence and as such no member of his family was present when the raids were conducted. He also claims he no longer stays in his ancestral home.
