Tripura police on Sunday arrested a 27-year-old man for raping his niece in a village of Khowai district, nearly 57 kilometres from capital Agartala.
The 10-year-old girl’s mother lodged a complaint with the police, stating that her sister’s husband Mithan Tanti committed the crime while she was away for work on Saturday.
“We arrested him a few kilometres away from his home. He will be produced before a court soon,” said Kamala Murasingh, the investigating officer.
A similar incident occurred at East Ganaki in Khowai district in the first week of this month where a 48- year-old man was arrested for raping his 9-year-old neighbour.
