Son of a bank officer allegedly involved in the attack on Burundi student Yannick Nihangaza was arrested Monday taking the total number of persons apprehended in this connection to four.

Intensifying its efforts to nail the culprits involved in the attack, Punjab police Monday arrested Amandeep Singh, son of a bank officer, from Jalandhar, Jalandhar deputy commissioner of police Sarvjeet Singh told PTI over phone in Chandigarh.

Singh said Amandeep will be interrogated to provide clues of other persons involved in the attack.

Police has been raiding various possible hideouts of those involved in the case, he said, adding, it was immediately difficult to reveal the number of youths involved in the crime.

Those already arrested in this case are Romi Uppal, son of a senior police officer, Sahil Deep Singh and another accused Sumeet. All of them are in police custody.

Uppal, son of Punjab superintendent of police Dharam Singh Uppal, had surrendered before police.

Meanwhile, Yannick's family said they have got partial relief after the arrest of four youths by police and the state government has come to their help after the media highlighted their plight.

Police sources said there were four to five people who are still at large as there were about 10 people who attacked 23-year-old Nihangaza on April 21.

Yannick has been in a state of coma for the last two months in a private hospital at Patiala.
