Though the girl returned to the house, she started bleeding the next morning. The family then rushed her to a hospital and informed the police.

Since the victim only spoke Marathi, police took help from a woman who spoke the language to interact with the girl. The victim narrated her ordeal and managed to give a description of the accused.

The accused was arrested on Saturday.

The police said Sudama was under the influence of alcohol when he committed the crime.

A case under IPC section 363 (Punishment for kidnapping), 376 (Punishment for rape) and relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act were registered against the accused, they added.
