London: The British police have arrested a
fourth person in connection with the killing of Indian student
Anuj Bidve, who died following an "unprovoked" attack on

The unnamed man is the fourth arrest after another man and
two teenagers were arrested in the last 24 hours. No further
details were released about the three arrests.

Bidve, from Pune, was with nine Indian students on Monday
when they were approached by two men in Salford. He was shot
at close range after a "very short" conversation.
Bidve, 23, was a student of Microelectronics at Lancaster

Professor Bob McKinlay, deputy vice chancellor of
Lancaster University, said Bidve had been "at the very
beginning of a promising career and had only been at Lancaster
for a short time. We are deeply saddened by his loss and our
thoughts are with his family and friends, and we will do all
we can to support them at this sad time."

In a statement, Bidve`s family has said his death had
left "a void in our lives."
"Anuj was a loving son, a super caring brother and first
and forever a friend for many.
"He valued his relationships and put them over anything
else," the family said in a statement released through the
Greater Manchester police.

The police have not ruled out racism as a motive for the
killing. The two men who approached the group of students at
Salford were described as white men.
Without ruling out racism as motive, Chief Superintendent
Kevin Mulligan had yesterday said: "This appears to be an
unprovoked attack and we can`t establish a motive at this
time. We are investigating every possible aspect and we are in
the early stages of the investigation, but we are not ruling
anything out".

A post-mortem revealed that Bidve died as a result of "gun
trauma" to the head.
