Goa Police on Sunday arrested one accused associated with the murder of famed perfumer Monika Ghurde, whose body was found naked at her apartment.
Earlier, the Police had sent out teams to the neighbouring states to nab the absconding accused.
Goa DGP Muktesh Chander, on Sunday, reported that the accused has been arrested.
The 39-year-old photographer-turned perfumer was found dead in her rented flat in posh Sangolda village on October 6.
Police suspect that she was raped and murdered somewhere between October 5 afternoon and night, as she had not been in touch with anyone since that time.
An autopsy suggested that Ghurde was suffocated and died from asphyxia due to compression of her neck and mouth. Results for tests to check if she was raped are awaited.
