Police have arrested four men in connection with the shooting death of an Indian student in northwestern England.

23-year-old Anuj Bidve was killed on Monday in a seemingly unprovoked attack close to a hotel in the city of Salford. Bidve was studying a postgraduate course at Lancaster University in northern England. He arrived in Britain just three months ago. He was taking a festive break with a group of friends when he was shot.

Police said a white man in his 20’s had stopped the student and spoken with him briefly, before shooting him at close range. Police had earlier said they had arrested two men aged 16 and 17.

Bidve’s family is in touch with UK police officials and has requested to bring back HIS body after completing legal procedures.
