Gupta said those taken to Mumbai by the police include Vicky’s cousin Sunil Kumar, his brother-in-law Vikas Kumar (who lives in East Champaran), Khalif Chauhan alias Ashish, Ankit Chauhan and Sanjeet Chauhan.

“I too was to be taken to Mumbai for interrogation. But I could not go there owing to ill-health,” he said.

Two migrant workers, Vicky Gupta, 24 and Sagar Pal, 21, residents of Masahi village in West Champaran were apprehended from Gujarat’s Kutch district on April 15 in connection with the firing incident.

When contacted, Bettiah superintendent of police (SP) D Amarkesh confirmed the arrival of Mumbai police in West Champaran on Monday late evening. He, however, refused to divulge any information.
