A man was arrested in New Delhi after he abducted a six-year-old girl in a bid to force her mother to marry him, reported Tamil Nesan.
The mother, who was staying alone with the girl after her divorce a few months ago, had met Jitender Kumar, 32, through a neighbour.
She had rejected Jitender's proposal because she had yet to move on from her previous relationship.
On Wednesday, the mother had gone to pick up her daughter from school but was told that the child had already left with a man. She subsequently lodged a police report.
Later that evening, she received a call from Jitender who kept pestering her to marry him.
Police then laid a trap for him by telling the mother to accept the proposal and arrange for meeting with him.
