NEW DELHI, Feb. 5 (Xinhua) -- Indian police have arrested a 25- year-old man for allegedly raping a minor girl in the national capital Sunday, a senior police official said Wednesday.

"The incident happened Sunday. The accused first lured the victim with chocolates and then raped her. We have arrested the accused, called Gopi Nisha Mallah, in the case. The girl is battling for her life at a hospital," he said on condition of anonymity.

The accused has been booked under the stringer anti-rape laws enacted by the Indian government in the aftermath of the brutal and fatal gangrape of a 23-year-old medical student by six men on a moving bus in the national capital in December 2012.

Rapes are common in India.
