Police also recovered strands of his hair and beard – that he had cut and that led to his arrest subsequently – from the spot as well.
On Monday, the police had recovered a .32 bore pistol from his possession when he was caught from outside Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway station.
Sources said during spot identification, Mintoo was made to retrace the route he had taken to reach Delhi from Nabha. He travelled from Nabha to Kurukshetra in a car arranged by the jailbreak conspirators and then he went to Kaithal in a public transport, where he was given the weapons.
