A team of Delhi Police is going to Uttarakhand in an effort to recover the Chinese pistol that was used in the Wazirpur honour killings case. The police said they would take the accused along with them to pinpoint the location of the weapon.

"They threw the weapon in river Ganga somewhere near Rishikesh. A team is going to be sent to see if we can recover the weapon to match the ballistics and build a stronger case against them," said a senior police officer on the condition of anonymity.

The Delhi Police is also looking into the possible involvement of other family members in the case. The police are interrogating Ankit Khari (22), Mandeep Nagar (23) and Nakul Khari (21) and trying find out if others were involved in the killings. Meanwhile, Mandeep's relatives, Dharambir Singh and Nitin Khari, who were arrested after allegedly making controversial statements to the media arrested, were released on Saturday.

The police have also rounded up a number of people from Wazirpur village in Northwest Delhi. "We believe Mandeep planned the whole thing but we are trying to find out if they were influenced or instigated by someone to commit the murders," said the officer. The police are questioning Mandeep's sister Khushboo to get leads in the case. They are also searching for a fourth accused Rakesh Singh alias Shanky.
