Jhajjar, June 9

The Jhajjar police arrested Anil Malik, the key accused in the case of sexual assault on a 25-year-old Bengali woman at Tikri, from Bhiwani on Tuesday night.

He had been absconding for over a month after a case was registered against him and five others on the complaint of the victim’s father.

Rajesh Duggal, Jhajjar Superintendent of Police, said Malik was arrested by a police team led by CIA-2 in-charge Manoj Kumar. He would be produced before a local court on Thursday.

The victim had come to Tikri from West Bengal to support farmers on April 12. She died of Covid at a private hospital in Bahadurgarh on April 30. On May 8, her father lodged a complaint alleging his daughter was sexually assaulted by Malik at the protest site.
