Dahod: A youth was on Saturday arrested for allegedly raping a girl and circulating an obscene MMS featuring her, police said.

"A 21-year-old youth Sashank Kashyap was arrested for raping a girl residing in his neighbourhood. He had gone to the girl's house and on finding her alone laced her drink with sedatives. After she fell unconscious, he raped her and also filmed the act and circulated an obscene MMS," police said.

Sashank, a resident of Moti Saarni village of Dahod taluka, was after the girl for quite sometime, and somehow became friends with her recently, according to police.
