Police Friday arrested Raju Kro, Johan Engti and Sosthenis Timung for their alleged role in lynching the duo.
Police had earlier arrested 43 persons, five of them arrested within 24 hours since the shocking incident took place on the night of June 8 at Panbari village besides cornering the other accused.
Police had identified Alphajoz Timung as the main accused who, after picking up a fight with Abhijeet and Nilotpal, had spread rumours of the duo being ‘child lifters’ that led to the spine-chilling incident.
Alphajoz, who had been absconding for some days, was finally arrested in the wee hours of June 13.
