The police had raided the houses of Usman Aggarbatiwala and other accused Imran Sheikh on Tuesday in Vadodara.
"Usman, during his interrogation, has said that Qayamuddin, one of the absconding suspects, had given him a bag which he had hidden in a warehouse belonging to his uncle," deputy commissioner of police ,Abhay Chudasama said.
"We searched the warehouse on Tuesday night and found the bag which contained one pistol, two live bullets, one air pistol, a seven inch long pipe bomb and 19 compact discs and DVDs," Chudasama said.
"The air pistols were used during the SIMI training camp in Halol in January 2008. They used to practice shooting using the air pistol. The bomb has been dismantled and its material has been sent to the forensic science laboratory, along with other material recovered, for analysis," he said.
"The CDs and DVDs contain jihadi speeches of Bin Laden and others. The CDs are also being analysed," Chudasama added.
Chudasama said they had also searched the house where the computer techie Abdul Subhan alias Taufiq used to stay while he was in Vadodara and recovered a laptop from there.
"The laptop was used by Subhan while he was in Vadodara. The data in the hard-drive of the laptop is being analysed by forensic experts," DCP Chudasama said.
