Wellington, March 18 (UITV/IANS) - New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Monday vowed to unveil reforms to the country's existing gun laws in the wake of the March 15 Christchurch mosques shootings that claimed the lives of 50 people.

At a news conference here, Ardern said her cabinet has agreed "in principle" on proposals to change the country's gun laws in response to the terror attack, but she stopped short of revealing what those changes might be, CNN reported.

Ardern said more details will be released once her cabinet "has worked through the in-principle decision" taken on Monday.

Actor among 3 more arrested in NRI's murder case

Hyderabad, March 15 (UITV/IANS) - Three more persons, including Telugu film comedian Surya Prasad, were arrested on Thursday in the murder case of Florida-based NRI businessman Chigurupati Jayaram, police said.

Besides Prasad, the police also took Kishore and Anji Reddy into custody.

Deputy Commissioner of Police A.R. Srinivas told reporters that they have almost completed the investigations into the case.

Surya Prasad and Kishore brought Jayaram to his house in posh Jubilee Hills and it was here that the businessman was murdered. Anji Reddy reached Rakesh Reddy's house after the murder but did not inform police.

On allegations that Rakesh Reddy spoke to couple of police officers after the murder, the DCP said they were conducting investigations.

He said while Rakesh Reddy had relations with politicians but there was no evidence of any political involvement in the crime.
