The Ahmedabad Crime Branch has apprehended four individuals in connection with the murder of Manish Shah, a 50-year-old trader. Shah, who resided in Vatva and ran 'Public Press News', was attacked near Sabarmati Riverfront on June 1 by two bike-borne men armed with a sharp knife.

Crime Branch Inspector VB Aal revealed that the principal suspect, Mahipalsinh Champavat, harbored a deep-seated grudge against Shah. Champavat solicited the help of three others to inflict serious injuries on Shah, who unfortunately died during treatment. The murder was motivated by an ongoing rivalry between Champavat and Shah's family, dating back to a case of rape registered by Shah's wife against Champavat's brother.

Following Shah's death on June 4, the Crime Branch swiftly moved to arrest Champavat, who had orchestrated the attack from their residential complex. Champavat paid Rs 1.20 lakh to assailants Aniket Oad and Vikas Oad, and Rs 50,000 to middleman Akash Vaghela. All four have been charged with murder.
