The minor girl was raped on Wednesday in the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) school in the Gole Market area but the incident came to light on Thursday after the victim's parents reported the matter to the police. "The attacker was identified as 37-year-old Ram Asre. He was arrested from the school on Thursday after the victim identified him," Deputy Commissioner of Police Madhur Verma said. Asre has been working in the school for around a month. He is a permanent electrician employed with the NDMC, the police said.

"During the investigation, it was found that Asre after school hours took the victim to a pump house where he sexually assaulted her.
