Baitadi police spokesperson Bodhraj Ojha said that Ashok Nath and Mahesh Nath of the same place were taken under control from their homes on Sunday. Police have arrested Bhat after he lodged a complaint alleging that he was killed in a fight on September 26.
Vijay's father Bir Singh Bhat had filed a FIR against Ashok, Laxman Nath, Rajendra Nath and Mahesh Nath of Dasharathchanda Municipality-5 through the District Government Attorney's Office.
Ashok was arrested today after an arrest warrant was issued in his name seeking permission from the district court. Laxman and Rajendra involved in the incident are absconding and their search is on.
Bhat, who is also a member of the Youth Association of Nepal Baitadi, was reportedly seriously injured in a fight with a friend on August 28 while returning home from Gothalapani Bazaar.
The injured died at Maya Metro Hospital in Dhangadhi on August 27. Bhat, the father of the deceased, has claimed that his son was killed after they started talking separately as there was no such crowd in the place where the fight was said. Police said that the district court has extended the time limit by five days and will investigate the incident.
