 A man was arrested here Sunday on charges of raping a married woman on the pretext of marrying her, police said.

Bhagirath Mishra, the 28-year-old accused who hails from Uttarakhand, and the 24-year-old victim from West Bengal were living together in Wazirabad village near Sector 52 for the last six months.

The woman was married to another man but was living separately. She met the accused six months ago and started living with him, a police official told IANS.

The woman said in her police complaint that Mishra promised to marry her but was reluctant later.

Both the woman and the accused were working in a private hospital.

Mishra has been charged under section 376-D of the Indian Penal Code which relates to the accused being on the management or the staff of a hospital and, taking advantage of his official position, committing rape on a woman in the same hospital.

Mishra will be presented before a court Monday.
