"Seven people have been arrested in connection with Sandeep's murder and a special investigation team (SIT) has also been formed to probe into the murder," Tiwari added.
According to media reports, Sandeep's murder occurred due to the case he had filed against illegal mining. His stories on manganese mafia were also published.
