Delhi Police has arrested a 40-year-old man in North Delhi‘s Sadar Bazar area for kidnapping and raping a minor girl.
Police said that the accused has been identified as Sudama residing in Nabi Karim area and he works as a drag cart in Sadar Bazar. The incident happened on Friday night.
Police said that the eight-year-old girl was sleeping outside her house with her grandmother on Friday night when the accused picked her up from there and took her to a nearby place and raped her there.
According to the Delhi police, meanwhile, the girl’s grandmother woke up and, not finding the girl there, told her family members about it. However, after some time the girl returned home, but the next morning she started bleeding from the genitals. The family then took him to the hospital and informed the police about the incident.
Since the victim speaks only Marathi, the police enlisted the help of a woman to talk to her. During this time, the victim child narrated her tragedy and managed to give a right about the accused.
The police then started searching for the accused and a few hours later on Saturday, the accused was arrested. Police said that at the time of the incident, the accused youth Sudama was drunk. A case has been registered against the accused under sections 363 (kidnapping), 376 (rape) and Posco Act of IPC.
