The police on Saturday arrested three more persons in connection with the lynching of Deputy Superintendent of Police Mohammed Ayub Pandith, leading to a total of five arrests.
Additionally, in order to enhance the investigation procedure, a Special Investigation Team (SIT) has been constituted to look into the case.
Three people were injured in the pistol firing. Curfew had been imposed in the area and police reinforcements had to be deployed to restore normalcy.
Immediately after the incident, Ayub's body was taken to the police control room for identification and completion of other legal procedures.
As a precautionary measure, the authorities have already announced restrictions on the movement of people in seven police station areas of the city.
