A  26-year-old security guard has been apprehended in connection with the murder of a 23-year-old woman IT professional from Infosys, who was found dead last night in a conference room of the company in Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park at Hinjawadi here, police said today. 

"On the basis of the CCTV footage from the company premises and other clues, we zeroed down on a security guard from Assam, who after the incident, fled and now has been held in Mumbai," said Arun Waikar, the senior police inspector with Hinjawadi Police Station. 

K Rasila Raju was allegedly strangulated with the help of a computer wire. The incident took place on the ninth floor of the Infosys building.

The suspect has been identified as Bhabhen Saikia, who was deployed as a guard at the Infosys unit, and is being brought to Pune, he said. 

OP Rasila from Kerala, who was working as a system engineer with Infosys was found dead after she was allegedly strangulated with the help of a computer cord and was hit hard on the face, police said. 

According to police, the incident might have taken place at around 5 PM, but police received the call around 8 PM last night. 

ACP Vaishali Jadhav-Mane had told PTI last night that the techie was working in the conference room on the ninth floor of Infosys's Phase-II campus whereas her two team mates were online from Bangalore. 

"Her manager was trying to call her, but there was no response. He then called and asked a security guard to go and check, and when the security guard went to see her, the woman was found lying on the floor in an unconscious state in the conference room," the officer had said. 

An offence has been registered under the section of 302 (murder) and further investigation is on, said police adding the process of post mortem is underway.
