The Gujarat anti-terrorism squad said that the two accused – both residents of Surat – escaped to the western state after killing the Hindu leader. “Once their money dried up, the accused called their family members and acquaintances in Surat for assistance. But those close to the two had already been placed under surveillance, and based on that, they were apprehended from the Gujarat-Rajasthan border near Shamlaji,” a statement released by the state police read.

This has taken the total number of people arrested in the case to six.

The two accused were last spotted on CCTV footage collected from a location close to the Shahjahanpur bus station, around 170 km from Lucknow.

Their next location has been found at a hospital in Bareilly where one of them got the dressing done in his injured hand,” the officer said.

Related to their brief stay in Bareilly, the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) of the Uttar Pradesh police on Tuesday detained three persons, including a local cleric Maulana Kaifi Ali, for allegedly helping the two killers of Tiwari in Lucknow on October 18. UP ATS officials said the two visited Ali after they killed Tiwari.

Ali facilitated the treatment of Pathan, who suffered injuries to his right hand while attacking Tiwari with a knife, at a private hospital in Bareilly on the night of October 18.

Following this, they returned to Lakhimpur Kheri with a plan to sneak into Nepal from the Gauri Fanta area on the India-Nepal border, the ATS officer said.

They returned after seeing a heavy police presence, this person added. Quoting the statement of the driver, Tauhid Ahmed, the officer said the two left the car near Shahjahanpur railway station on the midnight of October 20. They were seen entering a hotel near Shahjahanpur railway station around 12.02 am on Sunday night.

The police also questioned the driver (Tauhid Ahmed) and the owner (Rajkumar) of the taxi the killers are believed to have hired on October 19 in their bid to cross over to Nepal from Shahjanpur.

The development has taken the total number of people arrested in the Hindu group leader’s murder to eight.

In addition to Tuesday’s arrests, six people have been arrested in the case, three from Surat — Rashid Pathan, his brother Faizan Pathan and their neighbour Maulana Salim Shiekh — two Bijnor residents, Mohammed Mufti Naeem Kazmi and Imam Maulana Anwarul Haq, and a Nagpur man, Syed Asim Ali.
