A minor Dalit girl was allegedly raped by a policeman following which the accused has been arrested, police said on Tuesday.

The 14-year-old girl was allegedly raped by Constable Rajesh Yadav (48) on Holi on 24 March, the police said.

The girl narrated the entire incident to her mother the next day, who took her to the police station but her complaint was not lodged.

Meanwhile, the accused allegedly pressurised the family to settle the matter.

The victim’s father then approached Additional Superintendent of Police Digamber Kushwah on whose direction an FIR was lodged at Kotwali.

Inspector Rakesh Kumar Singh, who arrested Yadav last evening, said the accused will be produced in court on Tuesday.
