Pune, Aug 25 : The man accused of raping an 11-year-old girl and then strangling her to death with her school tie in Pune, has been arrested by the police, media reports said on Sunday.

He raped the girl there and then choked her to death, the police said.

''We searched for her and found her body in the field. She was raped... the police told us he strangled her with the school tie... I want that he be sent to the gallows for this crime," the victim's father told NDTV channel.
