Badaun: Uttar Pradesh police on Thursday night arrested the main accused in the gang rape and murder of an anganvadi worker here.

Temple priest Sathya Narayanan was apprehended in a late-night crackdown as he was hiding in a nearby village.

District Magistrate Kumar Prashant confirmed the arrest saying the accused was held in a midnight crackdown.

Police had earlier held two others in the case in which a woman was gang-raped and succumbed.

The woman who had gone to the temple on January 3 didn't turn up. Later, the temple priest and two others brought the woman's body to her home.
