Kolkata: The West Bengal CID has arrested one more person for his alleged involvement in the murder of BJP leader Manish Shukla, a senior officer of the agency said.
At least 10 people have been arrested so far in connection with Shukla’s murder, he said.
Acting on a tip-off, state CID sleuths conducted a raid in North 24 Parganas on Thursday night and arrested the man, believed to be one of the “key conspirators” in the case.
“The accused, a resident of Basanti in South 24 Parganas district, is suspected to be one of the main conspirators. He will be produced before a court today,” the officer said.
Shukla, a BJP councillor, was shot dead on October 4 in Titagarh area of North 24 Parganas by unknown bike-borne assailants.
