A juvenile was arrested on Thursday by police for the rape and murder of an Odia woman, whose decomposed body was recovered from a forest near Porovin in Goa on January 10.

Police have launched a hunt for another accused, who is still on the run.

Police arrested and booked the accused under Sections 302 (murder), 376(rape) of the IPC after recovery of the body of the 28-year-old victim.

The sketch of the absconding accused has been circulated and all border check posts and railway police have been alerted.

On Friday, the arrested minor boy was produced in a local court which directed the accused be lodged in a State run juvenile home.
