Miscreants had looted goods from the houses of displaced victims during the riots. Hidden goods have been recovered by the police in few houses in the same village and in other areas too, the officials said.

The riots in Muzaffarnagar in September last year left over 60 people dead and rendered 40,000 homeless who had to seek shelter in relief camps.
