New Delhi: A 35-year-old man was arrested on Saturday for allegedly killing his live-in partner for insisting upon him to marry her after divorcing his wife, the police said.

The decomposed body of the 25-year-old woman was found in an almirah in northeast Delhi's Gokalpuri on August 2.

The man had earlier informed the police that a foul smell was emanating from the house.

After searching the house, the police discovered the woman's body from an almirah in it and suspected the man's role in the murder.

Later on interrogation, he confessed to killing her on the intervening night of July 31 and August 1, the police added.

The accused was a married man, having four children and the victim was pressurising him to leave his wife and get married to her, the police said.

The accused was also jealous of her friendship with other men and often scolded her. He also had an eye on the victim's house in which she was staying, they added.

The victim's autopsy is yet to be conducted even though it is suspected that she was strangulated, the police said.

The accused has been remanded in two days' police custody.
