HYDERABAD: A 20-year-old carpenter was arrested by the Neredmet police for attempting to rape a minor girl. On Sunday evening, Md Jaleel from Ambedkar Nagar in Neredmet lured a four-year-old girl from his neighbourhood into his house by offering to give her a chocolate.
“When Jaleel was about to force himself upon the girl, a teenager from the neighbourhood knocked on the door. Panicked Jaleel opened the door and ran away,” Neredmet inspector M Jagdish Chander said. After the incident, the girl’s father went to Jaleel’s house. The latter’s friends tried to attack them.
Based on the complaint lodged by the girl’s family members, police booked a case against Jaleel under the POCSO Act and arrested him. Five friends of the accused, including one Naveen, were arrested for trying to assault the father of the victim.
