A 60-year-old man, who allegedly raped his 18-year-old daughter-in-law at their residence in Saraipalya, was arrested by the Hennur police on Friday.

The police said the crime was committed early Monday when the teenaged bride was alone at home with her father-in-law. Her husband and mother-in-law had gone to their native place in Kolar at the time of the crime.

Newly married

The girl had fallen in love and got married only three months ago, said the police. Though she was raped on Monday, the police were told only on Thursday night.

A case of rape has been registered under Section 376 IPC in this regard.
