A city-based call centre employee was on Thursday arrested in connection with the sensational murder of his 25-year-old woman colleague after he confessed to it, a senior police official said.
27-year-old Gururaj Kishore has confessed to the crime, Additional Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Bipin Gopalakrishna said in Bangalore.
The body of Tanya Banerjee, who was working with Aviva-24/7, was found with nearly 25 injuries, "mainly stab wounds", on a highway near Sakleshpur in Hassan district on Wednesday.
Tanya, hailing from West Bengal, was working with Aviva-24/7 in the city where she and Kishore had joined last month before serving another company.
This was the second such incident involving a call centre employee since 24-year-old Pratibha Murthy was allegedly raped and murdered by the driver of a car leased by her employers in Bangalore in December 2005.
