Inspector general (Aligarh) Sanjeev Gupta said that Salim, who was hiding in Kasganj since the incident, has admitted that he had opened fire at Chandan from the terrace of a building.

Another 15-second video shot from the roof a building shows a group of men moving on the road below the building.

The police, meanwhile, are examining two video clips that are purportedly about the events of January 26. Demanding a government job for a member of his family, VHP also requested Adityanath to give a compensation of Rs 50 lakh and a house to the kin of the deceased. Another man, identified as Akram, received head injuries.

One person was killed and some others were injured in communal clashes during Republic Day celebrations last Friday.

A day later, violence broke out again when people returning from Gupta's cremation went on a rampage.

On another note, the internet services, which were suspended in Kasganj region after the violence, were restored today.

Locals reportedly objected to some slogans raised.
