Srinagar: A man was today held for allegedly attempting to rape a minor girl after protests broke out demanding his arrest in south Kashmir`s Kulgam district.
Tariq Ahmad Dar, a resident of Bugam village in Kulgam, was arrested this morning after locals complained that he had tried to molest a minor girl in his neighbourhood yesterday, Kulgam Superintendent of Police Mohammad Shafi Mir said.
The incident led to minor protests in the village with locals demanding Dar`s arrest.
