MUMBAI: A teenager, who assisted a painter in allegedly murdering his 27-year-old partner and dumping her body in a suitcase at CST railway station on September 26, has been arrested, police said on Sunday.

The victim’s quarrel with her live-in partner (the prime accused) over his “illicit relationship” with a minor girl living in neighbourhood led to her murder, railway police claimed, PTI reports.

Amol Karanjule (19) was arrested on Saturday evening after prime accused Pravin Thackeray (29) was nabbed from Pune earlier in the day. Pravin was in a relationship with the deceased, identified as Roshni (27), since 2002.
