The arrested accused was identified as Piyush, son of Rakesh Banjara, a resident of village Sirhol near Sector 18 here on Delhi-Gurugram Expressway.
Piyush is a student of a private university here and lived in a rented flat in a residential society in Sector 82 where he committed the crime, the police said.
