Ajay Katara, the main witness in the 2002 murder of Delhi boy Nitish Katara, was on Friday arrested on charges of attempting to kidnap and murder a girl.

Ajay Katara's testimony was crucial in the conviction of the two cousins -- politician DP Yadav's son Vikas and nephew Vishal -- in the murder of Nitish Katara.

Nitish Katara, son of a senior Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer, was kidnapped and murdered after he attended a wedding in Ghaziabad on February 16, 2002. His half burnt body was found in a village in Bulandshahar in Uttar Pradesh.

In July this year, Ajay Katara told the police that he was fired upon in Ghaziabad's Patel Nagar. He had said this was fourth attack on his life.
