On the other hand, Shahbaz Gill, who was present the entire time his room was being searched, said the gun did not belong to him. He said it might belong to his security guards since he himself owns a licensed weapon. Moreover, Shahbaz Gill expressed suspicion that someone else had placed the pistol in his room after his arrest.

Interestingly, Shahbaz Gill also said that when they entered the room, things were not in the same place that he remembered them to be.

“I see some changes in my room, my passport wasn’t found at its usual place…this hints that somebody came here during the period of my custody,” Shahbaz Gill told the media.
