A 16-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a 35-year-old married man over a period of five to six months on the pretext of marriage in southeast Delhi's Jamia Nagar area, police said on 12 December.

The victim approached the police on sunday after the accused went back on his promise, they said.

The accused, who is married and has children, had promised the girl that he would leave his family and marry her, and coerced her into building physical relations with him which continued for five-six months, said a senior police officer.

When the minor asked him about marriage, the accused, who lives in the same area, refused to marry her following which she informed her parents and also approached the police, said the officer.

"A case under section 376 (Punishment for rape) of the IPC and relevant sections of POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act) has been registered against the accused," the officer added.
