Police said the incident occurred on Monday in Ganesh Nagar area when the 11-year-old girl, a Class 5 student, was going to a grocery shop. The accused, Mohammad Hazrat, is her neighbour.
Hazrat dragged her inside his house -- a rented accommodation -- when he saw her outside and molested her. The girl, however, raised an alarm. Sensing trouble, Hazrat escaped from his house, a senior police officer said.
"The victim revealed the episode to her mother and her parents informed police," the police officer added.
