A 63-year-old man has been arrested for sexually assaulting a minor girl at Loni town of Ghaziabad on Saturday. The incident took place when the victim, an eight-year-old, was playing outside her home.

The accused, Yusuf Sheikh, called her inside his house where he allegedly sexually assaulted the girl.

After the minor narrated the incident to her mother, she called up the police. “Locals caught Sheikh and handed him over to police,” a police officer said. “There were signs of sexual assault on the minor’s body,” circle officer Arvind Kumar Yadav said.
