Bhagat Singh was arrested from the Titwala railway station in suburban Thane today morning. He will be produced in court later today.
Singh allegedly kidnapped the minor girl - his neighbour - while she was returning home from her tuition classes. He then raped her in his flat. Later, he killed her and wrapped her body in a bed sheet and threw it in the building compound.
The police have registered offences under sections 363, 376, 302, 201 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the accused.
