A case under the stringent POCSO Act has been registered after a minor girl complained of rape by an unidentified man in south on Holi, Police said on Tuesday.

Police said the minor said in her complaint that the unidentified person took her away from the Navjeevan Camp Park in Govind Puri area on Monday night.

"The girl was left near her house around 10 p.m. She narrated her ordeal to her mother, who complained to the police. A case was registered under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act," Deputy Commissioner of Police Romil Banniya said.

"A medical examination at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences corroborated the girl's statement," Banniya said.

Police are examining closed-circuit television footage from the area.

Prima facie, the crime was committed in a planned manner since the accused had smeared his face and clothes with colour to hide his identity.
