Delhi:  The Dhaula Kuan area of south Delhi seems to have become a 'nightmare street' for the Capital's fairer sex. Since last year, several cases of rape and molestation have been reported from the area.

On Sunday, the horror was repeated. A 19-year-old girl was raped by her neighbour in her room in Anand Nitekan near Dhaula Kuan. The accused, a 25-year-old man, has been arrested.

According to a senior police official, the victim, Neha (name changed) is a native of Jharkhand and has been living in G-Block of Anand Niketan with her elder sister for the past few years.  "On Sunday evening, when she was sleeping in her house, her neighbour Sanjay barged into her room and locked the door from inside. He then threatened her and raped her.

On hearing a commotion, the victim's sister reached the spot and called the police," the officer said. The police then took the victim to Safdarjung Hospital where the medical examination confirmed rape and a case was filed.
