"Yes, Yogesh Raj has been arrested. He is undergoing medical examination and would be produced in the local court later today for legal proceedings," Circle Officer (Siyana) Raghvendra Kumar Mishra told news agency PTI.

Raj had been absconding since December 3 when mob violence reared its ugly head in UP's Bulandshahr. The clashes broke out when some local residents were protesting against alleged cow slaughter at illegal slaughterhouses.

A police inspector, Subodh Kumar Singh, and a civilian, Sumit Kumar, were killed on December 3 in the mob violence that broke out in Bulandshahr's Siyana area after cattle carcasses were found strewn outside a village.

A man suspected to have attacked Subodh Singh with an axe, and another who allegedly shot him after the axe attack, were arrested on January 1 and December 27, respectively. An Army jawan, Jitendra Malik, has also been arrested.
