Purna Bahadur Ghartimagar, at a guest house in Gongabu here.

A special police team arrested Chhabi Lal Ghartimagar and his accomplice Om Ghartimagar from Butwal on Sunday.

Chhabi Lal is the elder brother of Purna Bahadur, police said adding that he has already admitted to the crime.

“Chhabi Lal said he killed his younger brother because he had an illicit relation with his wife and had impregnated her,” the police quoted him as saying.
