New Delhi: Investigators on Monday continued to remain clueless about the murder of a French national in a central Delhi guest house despite arresting a Kashmiri youth.

Manzoor Ahmed, who is said to be a handicraft trader, was apprehended from Srinagar yesterday and brought to Delhi for allegedly murdering Lauren (34) in Hindustan Guest House in central Delhi's Paharganj.

Lauren's decomposed body was discovered on April 4 and her identity was established the next day. She had reached Delhi on March 30.

Ahmed had booked the room in the guest house and was missing.

Police said they were awaiting for the viscera to ascertain the exact cause of death. Investigators suspect that she was strangled.

Sources claimed Ahmed, who was sent to three days police custody, was changing his statements continuously and they were yet to ascertain the exact motive behind the murder.
