During the searches at the premises of the accused and suspects, digital devices like cell phones, SIM cards, memory cards, pamphlets carrying hate messages, DVRs, knives, and other incriminating documents and materials were seized.

Kolhe was stabbed to death allegedly for supporting the comments of the sacked spokesperson of BJP Nupur Sharma on Prophet Mohammad.

The case was initially registered on June 22 at police station city Kotvali in Amravati. The NIA had re-registered the case on July 2 and taken over the investigation.
Further investigations in the case are underway, the spokesperson said.
