Kathmandu, May 11 - An Indian national, accused of killing an engineer, has been arrested in Nepal, police said Sunday.

Dipankar Dutta from Kolkata, the prime suspect in the killing of hydropower engineer Laxmi Kant Mishra in July last year, was arrested by Nepal Police in the bordering town of Birgunj Saturday, police said.
