Hyderabad: The Kachiguda police on Wednesday arrested one person on charges of murder.
The suspect, Erukala Praveen (22) a resident of Nimboliadda and native of Medak district, was working with the victim, Nimmala Lingaiah alias Saidulu, at various construction sites over the last few years. However, with Lingaiah not paying him wages for the last few days, there was an argument between the two. Praveen attacked Lingaiah and when he fell on the ground, he smashed a boulder on his head, killing him on the spot, Kachiguda SHO Mohd Habeebuddin Khan said.
Praveen tried to flee from the city but could not make it far with police teams nabbing him on the way. He was arrested and produced before court.
