UP: Man accused of killing Allahabad Law student arrested

Police and Rapid Action Force (RAF) have been deployed around Allahabad University campus. Senior superintendent of police Akaash Kulhari said Vijay Shankar Singh, who is a ticket examiner in Railways, took shelter in various places like Faizabad to dodge the police and was nabbed from Sultanpur bus stand.

The prime accused in the killing of Dalit law student Dileep Saroj in Allahabad last week was arrested from Sultanpur today, police said.

Earlier on Monday, a large number of students from the Allahabad University protested on the streets, accusing the police of delaying the investigation and not going after the main accused.

On Friday, the victim was thrashed by a group outside a restaurant after some altercation. The matter came to light after some videos surfaced on social media.

A waiter who tried to stop the fight is seen hitting Dilip with a rod on the CCTV video. The 26 year old Dileep succumbed to his injuries after two days.

Students of the Allahabad university had gone on a rampage after Saroj's death.

The Yogi Adityanath government, after facing much flak, had announced a compensation of Rs 20 lakh to the family of the deceased.

The other three accused - Gyan Prakash Awasthi, Ramdeen Maurya and Munna Chauhan - have already been arrested. The police say his strike led to the student's death.
