A 25-year-old man was arrested for allegedly trying to rape a five-year-old girl who had gone to watch Ramlila in South-East Delhi’s Amar Colony area. The accused was allegedly caught by the girl’s family members, who handed him over to police after beating him up. The incident comes close on the heels of the rape of a two-and-half-year-old girl in West Delhi.
“The accused lured the girl and took her towards the railway track. The other children in the area raised an alarm and informed her parents. They rushed to the spot and found the accused with the girl,” said a police officer.
