New Delhi: A 22-year-old government school teacher was arrested here for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl after promising to marry her, police said Friday.
"The accused has been arrested from his house at Nangloi area in west Delhi, on May 4, after the victim`s parents approached the police," said a police officer, refusing to be identified on the grounds that he was close to the family and his name`s disclosure could lead to the victim being identified.
The girl, a resident of Narela area, befriended the accused a year back at a marriage ceremony in Nangloi.
