A day after four main accused were arrested in the case of murder of Lyallpur Khalsa College student Manpreet Singh Manu, 20, a resident of Raj Nagar of Basti Bawa Khel of the city, the police on Wednesday arrested one more accused.
The accused, Satinder Singh Saini alias Kaka (19), BA-1 student at Lyallpur Khalsa College, was arrested from GNDU Ladhewali road by the team of CIA wings after getting a tip-off.
Satinder is a resident of Guru Nanak Pura West.
Meanwhile, Satinder, along with, Balraj Singh Aulakh of Satnam Nagar, Maninder Singh Goli of Suchi village, Palwinder Singh Kalsi of New Kamal Vihar and Bharat, a resident of the Officers’ Enclave, who were arrested on Tuesday, were produced in local courts on Wednesday and sent to three-day police custody.
The police claim it is yet to arrest three more accused and recover weapons used in the crime.
Aulakh is a former student and three others are presently studying in the same college.
The rivalry between two students’ groups over heading an unofficial student union in the college was the reason behind Manpreet’s murder.
