A source said Saikia is from Assam and was preparing to flee there when he was detained by the police at Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station on Sunday night. He was formally arrested on Monday morning.

"The incident might have taken place around 5 PM but we received a call around 8 PM. Rasila was employed as a software engineer by the firm," Assistant Commissioner of Police Vaishali Jadhav-Mane said.

"Her manager was trying to call her, but there was no response. He then called and asked a security guard to go and check, and when the security guard went to see her, the woman was found lying on the floor in an unconscious state in the conference room," the officer added.

The cause of the murder is not yet known.
