New Delhi, May 23 (IANS) The Delhi Police on Monday arrested another person on charges of killing Congolese national Masonda Ketada Olivier following a quarrel over hiring of an auto-rickshaw, an officer said.
The accused, identified as Prakash, a driver by profession, was arrested in the morning from National Capital Region (NCR), said the police officer.
Earlier, Mobin Azad Saifi was arrested on Saturday, a few hours after the murder, the officer said.
Saifi is also previously involved in a criminal case.
Another accused Mukesh, who was earlier involved in a cheating case, is still on the run.
All the three accused reside in south Delhi’s Mehrauli and Chhatarpur areas.
The accused beat to death Olivier, 29, near Kishangarh village in south Delhi late on Friday. Olivier was hit on the head with a stone, leading to his death.
The three accused — Saifi, Mukesh and Prakash — insisted on travelling in the same auto-rickshaw which was being hired by Olivier. The ensuing argument then turned violent leading to the fatal attack on the victim.
