New Delhi, Feb 15: Delhi Police said on Tuesday that they have arrested a 30-year-old man for allegedly raping an 87-year-old woman at her residence in the national capital’s Tilak Nagar area.
The accused, who has been identified as Ankit alias Jhandal alias Mogli, a resident of Harijan Colony, Tilak Nagar, was working as a part-time sweeper in the area.
Furnishing details about the case, Additional DCP (West District), Prashant Gautam, said the elderly victim lady is a resident of Tilak Nagar where she stays with her 65-year-old daughter.
On Sunday, as a daily routine, the daughter went for a walk in a park nearby around midday.

The victim was very mentally disturbed and could only tell about her missing phone. (pti)
