He said, “Criminal hideouts in the area were raided on Sunday, after the attack and about 25 persons were arrested. We are screening them to ascertain their culpability.

 “All mercenaries have been set on ground to fish out those behind the attack and recover the arms that were carted away. They made away with only three arms; they did not have access to the armoury.

“They actually came for the arms because the suspects inside the cell, including some of their accomplices, were intact.
“We lost two policemen to the attack. But the Inspector that led the team and a corporal are being treated.”
