The British police has arrested a fourth person in connection with the killing of Indian student Anuj Bidve, who died following an "unprovoked" attack on Monday.

The unnamed man is the fourth arrest after another man and two teenagers were arrested in the last 24 hours. No further details were released about the three arrests.

Bidve, from Pune, was with nine Indian students on Monday when they were approached by two men in Salford. He was shot at close range after a "very short" conversation.

Bidve, 23, was a student of microelectronics at Lancaster University.

Professor Bob McKinlay, deputy vice chancellor of Lancaster University, said Bidve had been "at the very beginning of a promising career and had only been at Lancaster for a short time. We are deeply saddened by his loss and our thoughts are with his family and friends, and we will do all we can to support them at this sad time."

In a statement, Bidve's family said his death had left "a void in our lives."

"Anuj was a loving son, a caring brother and first and forever a friend for many," the statement added.
