The Uttar Pradesh police have arrested three people in connection with the attack on BJP pioneer Brijesh Tevatia. The main accused is still on the run.
The UP Special Task Force made the arrest from Muradnagar region of Ghaziabad district, reports said. Police will give more subtle elements in a scheduled press conference later on Wednesday by IG Meerut.
Armed assailants had opened fire at BJP leader Tevatia’s vehicle last Thursday evening in Ghaziabad. Mr. Tevatia received six bullet injuries in the incident and is currently admitted in hospital. He had contested the 2012 UP Assembly elections.
The police claimed to have solved the case and have so far suspected personal animosity behind the attack. However, they are probing all angles. Two dozen persons, including a woman constable, were already detained in the case.
