Yadav had lured the girl by offering her a chocolate and after she ate it, she became unconscious. He took her to Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh where he forcibly made physical relations for eight months, Mehrishi said.
He said a police complaint was lodged by her parents who suspected Yadav, who lived in their neighbourhood, to be the perpetrator.
