The accused has been arrested from Nagpur. He confessed his crime to the police that his friend was trying to get closer to his girlfriend, therefore he killed him.

The incident occurred in Girwai police station area, where, a young man was murdered by his childhood friend. The police arrested the accused in Nagpur and brought him to Gwalior on Sunday.
