According to Circle Officer Mahesh Mishra, the trio of doctors, Adip Kotpal, owner of the private hospital, its manager Kirshan Kumar and one Ramkumar, were on Wednesday arrested in the district's Mirapur town.
    
The three doctors have been taken into custody for sheltering accused Monu after admitting him at their private hospital for treatment without informing police.

The police said that Monu, who has been accused of shooting Singh dead in an attack on June 10, was himself shot in the process and went to the said hospital for treatment.

47-year-old Singh, also known as 'Fauji', was a retired army man and BJP’s unit vice-president in Mirapur town.
    
According to the police, he was out for a morning walk on June 10 when two assailants fired multiple shots at him. Singh fired back at the attackers, injuring one of them. But the attackers managed to snatch the gun from him before fleeing.

Meanwhile, after being arrested on June 11 for the murder of Singh, Monu has now been placed in judicial custody at the Medical College in Meerut.
