A 15-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her neighbour in New Ashok Nagar area of East Delhi, police said on Friday.
The incident took place yesterday morning and Raju, 24, who is pursuing B Com at a private college, has been arrested in connection with the case, police said.
"The victim was on her way to school when Raju offered to drop her on his bike. As Raju was known to the girl, she agreed. But instead of dropping her at the school, he took her to a secluded area where he allegedly raped her," a senior police officer said.
After committing the crime, Raju dropped her outside her school and fled. He also threatened her of dire consequence if she revealed about the incident to anyone.
"The girl, however, told her parents about her ordeal who then informed the matter to the police. A case under relevant sections has been registered against the accused," the officer added.
In another incident reported from the same area, a 45-year-old woman has alleged that she was raped by an MCD employee.
"The incident took place yesterday when accused Gayachan, who works as security guard, took her to a flat where he offered her a drink laced with sedatives and then allegedly raped her. Based on the woman's complaint, a case has been registered against Gayachan," police said.
