Oz teen held for Nitinís murder

Melbourne, June 17
A 15-year-old boy was arrested in Australia today in connection with the murder of Indian student Nitin Garg, who was stabbed to death in January this year, sending shock waves back home.

The teenager was arrested by the Victoria police in the western Melbourne suburb of Yarraville at 9 am (local time) and homicide detectives said he was expected to be charged with one count of murder. A Victoria Police spokeswoman said detectives had also spoken to other people in relation to Garg's murder, and the investigation was continuing.

The accused is expected to face a Children's Court, the Victoria police said in a statement. Garg, 21, was stabbed as he walked through Cruickshank Park, in Melbourne's west, on his way to work at a Yarraville Hungry Jack's outlet after 9.30 pm on January 2.

After the stabbing Garg staggered to the fast food outlet, at the corner of Somerville and Geelong roads, and died after sometime. He was not robbed and his belongings were left scattered in the park where he was killed.
