New Delhi - Indian police say they have arrested a
20-year-old man on suspicion of raping and sodomising a 4-year-old girl, the
latest incident of sexual violence to shock the country.
Police officer B S Jaiswal says police arrested the
suspect in New Delhi on Wednesday, the same day he is accused of assaulting the
girl, who is his neighbour.
The girl was hospitalised and in a stable condition on Thursday.
The girl was home alone at the time of the attack and was
found crying outside her home by another neighbour.
India was shaken in December by the gang-rape of a
student on bus, which was being driven through New Delhi.
The woman later died from her injuries.
The rape sparked outrage across India about the treatment
of women in the country.
