A few days ago, Vaibhav Raut (associated with the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS), the parent outfit of Sanatan Sanstha), Sharad Kalaskar, and Sudhanva Gondhalekar were arrested for planning attacks in the state. While interrogating Kalaskar, the CBI found out about Sachin Andure, who was then arrested for allegedly murdering Dabholkar.

The CBI informed the court that a pistol that was seized from accused Andure’s brother-in-law's house, was used to murder both Dabholkar and Gauri Lankesh.

After arresting Andure, CBI carried out a raid at his friend and brother-in-law’s house where they seized arms and ammunition that included 7.65 pistol, three live cartridges, sword, and a dagger.
