One person was held in Chhijarsi village in Noida on Wednesday for allegedly attempting to rape a 14-year-old girl.
The accused is the nephew of the landlord at whose house the family of the girl resides.
Sector 58 Station Head Officer Dharmender Chauhan said, "Accused Rajan Kumar was nabbed by the neighbours after they heard screams from the room and rushed to her rescue. They thrashed him and handed him over to the police. An FIR was registered against him and he was sent to jail."
The girl is the daughter of a rickshaw-puller who was alone at home at the time of the incident.
