A 30-year-old man was arrested on Thursday after his woman neighbor in Sector 52 alleged that he had raped her two-year-old daughter on Wednesday night.


Police said Sandeep entered the tenement of his neighbour when the girl's parents, who are labourers, were away to work and she was alone. Upon returning, the mother noticed that the girl was bleeding from her private parts.

Comforted by her parents, the girl told them about the incident and named Sandeep, after which the case was registered at the Sector-36 police station. Sandeep, who is also a labourer, faces section 8 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act 2012 and punishment for rape under section 376 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
