On August 23, the Islamabad police raided Gill's room in the Parliament Lodges late in the night and recovered weapons, satellite phone, and foreign currency from there. 

The raid was carried out under the supervision of a senior superintendent of police (SSP) and Gill accompanied the police team in handcuffs.

A pistol was recovered during the operation; however, Gill refused to take ownership of the weapon.
