Mumbai: A 32-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly raping a minor girl at his residence in Jogeshwari. According to Meghwadi police, the accused Raghunath Devale (32) was arrested on Monday night after the victim’s father approached the police, accusing his neighbour of raping his 15-year-old daughter. In his complaint, the victim’s father alleged that Devale had molested his daughter on April 30, by luring her to his house in Sanjay Gandhi Nagar area. However, as the girl started crying loudly, the accused refrained from making further advances and let her return to her house, police said. On Thursday night, the accused again took the victim to his house and then sexually abused her.
