Mumbai: The sessions court on Friday rejected the anticipatory bail plea of a 28-year-old man, accused of raping a 12-year-old girl continuously for two years, after observing that it was a serious offence.

"Raping a minor girl is a serious offence and the accused needs to be interrogated by the police," additional sessions Judge P H Mali remarked while rejecting the bail plea.

The accused, Gyan Prasad Sharma has been along with eight other men including a 70-year-old man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl for over two years at suburban Saki Naka, where she was staying with her maternal aunt.

While five of the accused were arrested and later released on bail, the police were on the look out for the remaining four.
