About two and half months after the murder of a four-year old girl, a youth has been arrested on charge of raping and killing her in Nadia district of West Bengal.

Police said Kartick Roy (35) was arrested on charge of rape and murder after allegedly taking the unsuspecting girl away from home on April 10 at Sadhur Bagan under Ranaghat police station in Nadia on Thursday.

As the youth, a frequent visitor to the girl's household, returned alone sometimes later, those at the residence became suspicious and a hunt began for the child.

While her body was found from a drain the next day, the accused went missing and a mob ransacked his deserted home.

Two months and ten days after the incident, he was arrested from a relative's house at Shantipur and remanded to police custody.
