Anil Yadav was arrested at Saraswati Vihar in north Delhi after the 28-year-old victim approached police Oct 25, said an officer.

Yadav, posted in Punjab's Faridkot district, befriended the victim on a train in March last year. He then came to the capital on several occasions to meet her.

The victim, posted at a police station in west Delhi, told police that Yadav established sexual relations with her and 'married' her in a temple in Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh.

She was not aware that he was already married and had a daughter in Madhya Pradesh's Indore district.
