As per news report of NDTV, CCTV footage recovered from the spot led to the identification of some of the attackers and we have intensified our raids to nab them, he said. Teams of Bhowali, Bhimtal and Mukteshwar police formed under Circle Officer Bhupendra Singh Dhoni are continuously conducting raids in order to arrest the suspects, Mr Bharne said. No arrests have been made yet, he added. Mr Khurshid's house in Satkol, about 15 kilometres from Nainital, was vandalised on Monday amid the ongoing controversy over his book "Sunrise Over Ayodhaya: Nationhood In Our Times" in which he draws a comparison between Hindutva and terror outfits like ISIS.
