A 32-year-old woman was on Thursday raped at knife-point allegedly by her neighbour in south-west Delhi, police said.

The victim alleged that she was alone at her residence in Dwarka when Laxman, the accused, entered the house and raped her at knife-point, police said.

The victim's husband was away at work when the incident took place.

Laxman, a contractor, left the house after the incident and threatened her with dire consequences if she disclosed about it to anybody.

The victim then called police. She was taken to a nearby hospital where a medical examination rape was confirmed and Laxman was arrested.
