Officials from the Greater Manchester police are headed to Pune to meet Anuj Bidve’s family to apprise them of the investigation into his murder.

Bidve, 23, a microelectronics post-graduate student at Lancaster university, was shot dead in Manchester on Christmas night.

The family confirmed the meeting, which is expected to take place on Monday afternoon.

“Chief superintendent Russ Jackson of the Greater Manchester police, plus a specially trained family liaison officer...will be visiting Pune on Monday,” said Rakesh Sonawane, Anuj’s brother-in-law, through email. The officials will head straight to Bidve’s Chandan Nagar residence in Pune after arriving in Mumbai.

According to agency reports, three police officers — chief superintendent Barry Russel Jackson, detective constable Peter Christian Rickards and police constable Esther Barbara Lambert — will meet the family.
