The constable had kidnapped the 13-year-old girl Thursday from a place near her house on the pretext of providing her a job as a domestic help, the police said.
The constable was booked under various sections of the POCSO Act, he said.
The constable had taken the girl near Willianmnagar and made an attempt to assault her sexually, the police officer said.
According to the police officer, the constable had approached the girl when she was washing utensils near her house.
He then asked the girl to come to his house to work as a domestic help and took her from there.
A local person saw this and informed the girl's family and a complaint was lodged with the police after which the accused was arrested, the police officer said.
