New Delhi: An eight-year-old girl was allegedly raped by an 80-year-old man in outer Delhi’s Narela, police said today.

The accused has been arrested.

On December 4, he lured the girl, who was playing outside, to his makeshift barn in Rohini.

He tried to force himself on her. Since the barn did not have a roof, a woman, who was standing on the terrace of her house, saw the accused with the girl, the police said.

She raised an alarm and alerted locals who rushed to the spot. The accused fled from there.

Police were subsequently informed and the girl was taken for a medical examination. A case was registered. The accused was arrested from the area on the same day.
