The accused Prahlad Lokhande, who claimed to be an office-bearer and president of a suburban Ghatkopar unit of Congress, was arrested on Sunday night from Kamraj Nagar area and remanded in police custody till July 8, they said.

According to police, Lokhande, who is already married, had frequented the victim's house as her father was his friend.
