Varshney was sent back to the Etah prison after being produced in Aligarh court amid tight security.

On February 23, Mohd Tariq, 22, was standing on the terrace of his house, when a stray bullet fired during the violence, hit him in the stomach.

He was immediately taken to the hospital for treatment where he succumbed to the injuries on March 12.

Vinay was arrested on charges of attempt to murder and after Tariq’s death, the charge was changed to murder.

Police had recovered the weapon which was used for crime and it was registered in Vinay’s name. — IANS
