A 26-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly raping a minor on the pretext of giving her a job in northwest Delhi’s Shalimar Bagh Thursday. Police said the accused works at a local dental clinic and had raped her inside his office.

According to police, the girl, who studies in Class X in a government school, lives with her family in Shalimar Bagh village. “The girl had contacted the accused around four days ago and told him about her economic status and said she needed a job to support her family,” said a police officer.
