Police have arrested a 23-year-old Ola driver for raping a 13-year-old girl in Dhakoli on Wednesday night.

The accused, identified as Jagmal, is a native of Haryana. He has been living in Dhakoli for the past four months. Police said the accused lived on rent near the girl’s house, and recently came in contact with her.
