Raj Dhingra raped the 47-year-old woman inside a guest house in north Delhi's Majnu Ka Tilla area Monday night on pretext of marrying her.
"After the rape when Dhingra refused to marry the victim, she sent a message to her brother about the incident. Victim's brother informed police about the incident around 12.40 am Tuesday and the accused was arrested from a guest house," said a police officer.
The officer informed that after the medical examination of the victim, Dhingra was arrested and later sent to judicial custody by a district court.
