The country-made weapon was found on the basis of the information provided by Salim, the main accused, during interrogation, Superintendent of Police, Piyush Srivastava said.
Two arms licences issued in Salim's name have been suspended following a directive by District Magistrate RP Singh.
"There were two licences - a revolver and DBBL gun - in Salim's name. It is also being probed if they had been used during the January 26 incident," Mr Singh said.
Following the violence, the administration cracked the whip on a WhatsApp group operating in Kasganj and arrested the administrator for posting objectionable and communally inciting messages.
