The city police on Friday resolved the mystery behind the murder of a rag-picker, Ganesh, with the arrest of his friend Deepak Singh. He killed Ganesh for allegedly maintaining illicit relationship with his girl friend. Enraged over this, Singh hatched a plan to kill him. Singh hosted a party for Ganesh at Kacheguda on July 19 and after consuming liquor, he picked up an argument with Ganesh and attacked Ganesh with a knife killing him on the spot. With the information collected from the victim’s friends, the police nabbed Singh and remanded him to judicial custody. Singh was also involved in several cases, including a robbery reported under the Sultan Bazaar police station limits.
