Gurugram, Aug 20 (IANS) A 34-year-old man was arrested under the POCSO Act for sexually assaulting a 4-year-old girl here, said a police officer on Tuesday.
According to the police, on Monday morning the accused, Pawan Kumar, saw the girl playing in the street and lured her to the basement of an under-construction house in the Badshahpur area and raped her.
