Police said that the man behind the killing has been arrested and that search is underway to trace three more accused. The arrested man has been identified as Rituraj.

Police said that back in November 2020, the incident had taken place near the U-turn at LJP's office in the city. Rupesh and the man had engaged in a brawl. Rituraj was following Rupesh since then.
