Chandigarh, Jun 7 (PTI) The Haryana Police has arrested three more people in connection with the killing of a 27-year-old gym trainer, who was attacked by a group of 15 men who had allegedly intercepted his car and assaulted him in Nuh district last month.

Gym trainer Asif Khan and his two cousins were returning from Sohna when the incident occurred on May 16.

'The three arrested accused are Rohit alias Kala, a resident of Udaka, Pardeep alias Patwari and Amit, both residents of Kheda Khalilpur. The trio, absconding since the incident, have been arrested following secret information,' a Haryana Police spokesperson said here on Monday.
