Man charged with Salford murder of Anuj Bidve

A 20-year-old man has been charged with the murder of the Indian student Anuj Bidve, who was shot in the head in Salford on Boxing Day.

Kiaran Stapleton, from Ordsall, was charged on Sunday.

Nazir Afzal, the Crown Prosecution Service's Chief Prosecutor, told a news conference: "There is sufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction."

Assistant Chief Constable Dawn Copley, who has overall command of the inquiry, said: "This remains a complex investigation and the fact we have charged someone does not mean the investigation is complete."
