Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): A man was arrested on Monday for raping a 17-year-old girl on several occasions for one year by promising to marry her. He also assaulted her, police said.

The complaint was lodged against the accused on Monday and he was arrested immediately. According to Bairagarh police, the girl had left studies two years ago and worked as domestic help in several houses.

Her father is a daily wager. Her neighbour Sanjay Rajak expressed love for her a year ago. After this, he allegedly raped her at his house by promising to marry her.
