Chandigarh:

A man, who "confessed" to killing two women over the last 10 years on live TV, was arrested mid-show from a news channel studio on Tuesday, the police said.

In the television programme, the 31-year-old accused, Maninder Singh, who is a cab driver, said he had killed his live-in partner on New Year's eve.

Sarabjit Kaur, a 27-year-old nurse, was allegedly killed inside a hotel room. "I killed her (Sarabjit Kaur) because she was having an affair with her sister-in-law's brother," Maninder Singh told the news channel.

The accused, who is a former murder convict, is currently out on bail and has also confessed to another killing in 2010, in Karnal.
