Pune: A 25-year-old woman working with Infosys was found murdered at her office in Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park in Hinjewadi in Pune on Sunday.

K Rasila Raju, who hailed from Kerala, was allegedly strangled with a computer wire. The incident took place on the ninth floor of the Infosys building. A security guard has been arrested in connection with the murder.

“The incident might have taken place around 5 pm but we received a call around 8 pm. Raju was employed as a software engineer by the firm,” Assistant Commissioner of Police Vaishali Jadhav said.

Jadhav said that Rasila was working in her office while her two teammates were online in Bengaluru.
