A fourth person has been arrested by police investigating the fatal shooting of an Indian student.

Anuj Bidve, 23, was gunned down at point-blank range as he walked with friends near their hotel in Salford, Greater Manchester, in the early hours of Boxing Day.

Greater Manchester Police said yesterday that a second man had been arrested. Another man was arrested last night while two teenagers, aged 16 and 17, are also being held on suspicion of murder.

All four remain in custody for questioning. Mr Bidve's family have paid tribute to a "loving son".

In a statement, they said: "Anuj was a loving son, a super caring brother and a friend for many."
