The SP said, Tiger was the one who provided these men with a 9 mm pistol and 12 bore country made katta. He said as per plan, it was decided that Nagesia would be killed either on the stage or while having dinner during the night of October 6. After firing upon the slain BJP leader, the four accused managed to flee, the SP said adding that the trio were arrested late last night. A loaded country made pistol, few live cartridges, couple of motorcycles, 9 mobile phones and pamphlets of the PLFi have been recovered from their possession.
