A man will appear in a Melbourne court tomorrow where NSW Police, investigating the suspicious death of a woman at Westmead, will formally seek his extradition to NSW.

Upon arrival, they located the woman believed to be a 29-year-old Indian National deceased. She had sustained a knife wound to the throat.
A crime scene was secured and examined by local detectives and Specialist Forensics Officers.
A 23-year-old man was arrested this afternoon as he was alighting from a bus at Melbourne’s Southern Cross Station by Victoria Police.
It is expected he will be formally charged with murder prior to his extradition hearing.
