A man was arrested on Thursday in connection with the brutal killing of three Nepali labourers at a village here last week, police said.
Dhan Bahadur Bora, who himself worked as a labourer in Munsiyari, was arrested from Thal. He has confessed to killing all the three in an inebriated state over an argument, Pithoragarh Superintendent of Police R C Rajguru said.
The bodies of the victims were found with their genitals mutilated at an abandoned house in a forested area on the eve of Diwali on October 26.
