The city police have arrested one more accused in connection with the murder case of a photographer during the 'Jago' ceremony of a marriage function in Tel Wali Gali locality on February 5.

One of the suspects, Billa is already in jail, while Punit Bajwa was arrested on Monday, police sources said.

Now vital evidence in the crime, including the videorecording and the camera used would be recovered soon, said police sources.

On February 5, late night, when 'Jago' was being taken out in the streets of Shekhan Bazar, some of guests of the ceremony opened fire from their revolvers in 'joy'. A bullet from these stary fires hit a cameraman, Naresh Kumar Bhutto, employed to cover the wedding. Bhutto later succumbed to his injuries in the civil hospital. A case under Section 302 (murder) of the IPC has been registered against Sham Sunder Billa, Punit Bajwa and Sachin.
