The police have arrested a 20-year old youth who killed his colleague, stole his ATM card and withdraw over Rs 60,000 from his bank account, officials said on Friday.
The police arrested the accused Naveen Vaishanav, a native of Sangod area, on Thursday for murdering 32-year old Rajkumar Meghwal alias Raju, a resident of Arneta village in Bundi district.
Two days back, the mutilated body of Raju was recovered from the bushes in Ranpur area under the Anantpura police station. The head of the victim had been crushed with stones, police said.
Both Raju and Naveen worked in the same private firm. While withdrawing money, Naveen had once noticed the pin number of Raju's ATM card and had also seen that his bank account had a deposit of around Rs 1.50 lakhs, police said.
