The raid was carried out coercively. The team confiscated a laptop, hard discs, pen drives, tablet microchip, college documents, books and articles. None of these was stolen articles. He was also threatened with arrest.
Local journalists report that the Gadchiroli Police claim that Hem Mishra has “confessed” that he received a microchip from Saibaba.
