Hearing her cries, some passers-by noticed the girl struggling to get free from the clutches of Singh. They immediately overpowered him and informed the victim’s parents and local residents, said a police official.
The girl’s parents informed the police and Singh was arrested on the charges of kidnapping and attempting to rape a minor.
