New Delhi, Dec 24 : After a seven-month-long investigation, the Delhi Police finally managed to arrest a serial rapist, a senior police officer said Tuesday.


Deputy Commissioner of Police P. Karunakaran told mediapersons here that Azad Khan, 27, of Tughlakabad in south Delhi raped three minor girls. A police team was sent to Khan's native village in Bihar from where he was arrested last week.

Khan chose Tughlakabad forest to rape all the victims, whom he picked up on the pretext of giving some eatables or something else.

"The sexual assault cases were reported this year in June, September and December. In every case, he fled leaving the victims at the spot," said Karunakaran.
