Vijay Singh Thakur, the hotelier accused of killing an assistant town and country planner in Himachal Pradesh’s Kasauli town, was arrested from Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh on Thursday, reported The Times of India.

Shail Bala Sharma was shot dead on Tuesday when she was helping conduct a Supreme Court-mandated anti-encroachment drive in Kasauli. The police said Thakur fired two rounds into the air when the officials began razing his hotel’s encroachments, and a stray bullet hit Sharma. A Public Works Department worker Gulab Singh was also injured in the shooting.

Soon after the shooting, the police announced a Rs 1 lakh reward for information on him. An unidentified police officer told NDTV that Thakur’s location kept changing from Delhi, Mathura and finally Vrindavan. He reportedly used a postman’s, rickshaw-puller’s and another man’s cellphones to contact someone in Solan. “That was a big lead,” the officer said.

Thakur had shaved his moustache and trimmed his hair to conceal his identity, reported The Tribune. The police reportedly found him sitting in a temple.
