An Indian-origin man was charged with raping a 13-year-old girl in the Australian state of New South Wales, a media report said on Sunday.


Police told a court here on Saturday that Surendra Chowdhry, 57, allegedly tied the girl's hands behind her back and then raped her in Sydney on New Year's day in 2013, the Sydney Morning Herald reported on Sunday.

Chowdhry wanted to "resolve the matter within the family", the report added.

Police said that the victim's father also tried to "bypass police and the judicial process".

The magistrate refused his bail and remanded him in custody.
