New Delhi: India is satisfied with the prompt
action taken by the British authorities against the culprits
involved in the murder of Indian student Anuj Bidve in
Manchester.

Official sources here said the issue figured when British
High Commissioner designate to India James Bevan met Union
Home Secretary R K Singh here today.

Bevan informed Singh that so far five arrests have been
made in connection with the incident and every effort was
being made to take the case into its logical conclusion.
The High Commission has already granted visas to parents
of Anuj to visit London and steps are being taken to bring his
body to India.

"We are satisfied with the steps being taken by British
authorities in the entire case," a source said.
Bidve (23) was shot in the head in Salford on Boxing Day
in an unprovoked incident. He was shot at point-blank range as
he walked with friends near their hotel in the inner-city
Ordsall district of Greater Manchester in the early hours of
December 26.
