The case was registered on December 30 on the complaint of victim's aunt, who alleged that in her absence, Yadav "raped" the minor.

Maqboolpura SHO Jagbinder Singh said police had arrested Yadav on the evening of December 31, produced him before a court next day and he was sent to judicial custody till January 15.

Police got the victim medically examined and got her statement recorded before a magistrate.

Maqboolpura SHO said the victim was sexually assaulted for the first time 20 days after Raksha Bandhan when her aunt, a widow, had gone to her native place in connection with completing formalities for widow pension.

"The last time, Yadav raped the victim was two days before Diwali," the SHO said.

"Yadav's wife used to call me mother and I had left my niece with them when I was away," said the victim's aunt.
