A man accused of shooting another man dead in presence of police in Ballia, Uttar Pradesh, has been arrested. Dhirendra Singh -- who had filed a "surrender application" at a court in Ballia -- was arrested on the Lucknow-Faizabad highway by the Special Task Force of the state police. The STF said he had fled to Bihar after the shooting and at the time of arrest, had returned to Lucknow, probably to find a hideout with someone he knew.

As per news report of NDTV, a surrender application allows an accused to surrender directly before the court, which then decides whether to send him to police or judicial custody. The process negates the possibility of immediate questioning by the police. In a normal arrest, the police can question the accused for a maximum of 24 hours, till he is presented before the court.
