On Wednesday at around 2:30pm, police received information that body of an unidentified girl is floating in a pond in Nariyalkheda. Later her identity was established after her parents recognised her as their daughter.
Following this police registered a case of murder and started investigation and they received inputs that the girl was last seen with accused Abhishek on a Pulsar motorbike who was later arrested from Karond Chouraha based on tip-off from an informer.
When he was quizzed he broke down and confessed to his crime. He told police that on Tuesday he took the girl for outing in old city and later they went to Boat Club at night.

During conversation with girl, he distracted her attention from him and after suppressing her mouth, slit the victim’s neck with blade from backside and thrown her body into pond. After that he had fled the area.
