Police on Friday claimed to have arrested a youth in connection with the murder of senior journalist Shujaat Bukhari.
Police earlier in the day released a video in which the arrested youth was apparently trying to help the injured in Bukhari’s car after gunmen fired at his vehicle killing him and his two guards.
This man was reportedly picking up a pistol from the site after which he escaped.
“He has been arrested and his interrogation is going on,” police said.
Meanwhile, state police chief S.P. Vaid told reporters here that “rest assured, we will get the killers”.
CCTV footage, accessed by the police, had shown three masked assassins escaping with the murder weapon on a motorcycle.
