Bangalore, July 30 - In yet another sexual assault on a minor in this tech city, a youth was arrested Wednesday for allegedly raping a seven-year-old girl at his home in northwest suburb July 25, police said.

We have arrested the accused, Srinivas, after interrogating him in detention on a complaint filed by the victim's parents in the local police station Tuesday night, deputy commissioner of police (DCP-West) Labhu Ram told IANS.

The incident happened when the victim was at the culprit's home alone after his mother brought her from school and went out, Ram said, quoting from the complaint.

The minor was taken to a state-run hospital in the city for a medical test to verify about the sexual assault on her.
