He said the suspect remains in police custody, adding that investigations are underway to determine the motive behind the killing.

The police officer said that they were also interrogating domestic help in the murder case. 

Rejecting reports that the accused is mentally ill, the SSP said that the suspect was fully conscious when the police arrested him.  He was not intoxicated at all, he clarified.

“A forensic team has collected evidence from the scene, which will help in the investigation of the murder,” he added. 

The SSP said that the suspect had also attacked another person and injured him before the police reached there to arrest him.
