The suspected, Dulhajaan, had recently visited Moradabad to meet his first wife and children. Acting on a tip-off from an informer hailing from Dulhajaan’s native village Lalwara in Katihar, Moradabad police arrested him in Katihar and brought him to Moradabad on transit remand on 9 August.
Divulging details, additional superintendent of police (rural) Vidya Sagar Mishra said, “Dulhajaan and his three aides, Kallu, Dana Shah and Ajmeri, had barged into the house of one Khyaliram and opened indiscriminate fire at him and his sons Dayaram and Tarachand on 11 July 2005. The other three suspected were arrested and sent to jail, but Dulhajaan was absconding. We have arrested him from a Rohingya colony in Bihar after 16 years. He was sent to jail.”
