The incident occurred around a week ago, police said. The accused and the victim live in the same locality. The accused is a craftsman who makes imitation jewellery. He was working from home when the child entered his house, while playing a game. As the neighbours were away to collect water, taking advantage of the situation, the accused locked her up in his room and sexually assaulted her.
