A day after the killing of an auto-rickshaw driver in Shahdara's Krishna Nagar area, a 25-year-old man was arrested on Thursday in connection with the case, police said. The accused was identified as Nikhil Chaudhary, a native of Bulandshahr and resident of Sagarpur, they said, adding that the weapon and the motorcycle used in the crime have been recovered.
According to police, 28-year-old auto driver Rohit was shot dead on Tuesday night by two bike-borne men.

The incident happened when Rohit was returning home. The killing was captured by a CCTV camera installed in the area, a senior police officer said.

An investigation is underway to determine if Rohit's wife was involved in the killing and raids are being conducted to apprehend the other accused, a senior police officer said.
