Solanki"s body was found lying in an isolated area with several stab wounds and her right hand severed. The accused, Kalpesh Thakor, was arrested on the charge of murder, a police officer said. "Thakor had known the victim for the last four years and was harassing her repeatedly. He had called her to meet him and he killed her using a sharp weapon. His was one-sided love for the victim," Additional Commissioner of Police Chirag Koradiya told reporters. The victim was staying with her uncle"s family in Vadodara and preparing for a police recruitment exam. After the brutal murder, crime branch sleuths narrowed down on Thakor, who was in the past reprimanded by the victim"s relatives for harassing her. During the interrogation, Thakor said he was angry with the victim as she was not reciprocating his love, and becoming friends with someone else, investigators said.
