Sikander alias Jeevanu was staying in a rented accommodation in Jaisinghpura Khor after being released from bail in 2015.  He has allegedly confessed to raping the 7-year-old girl in Shastri Nagar. He had on June 22 raped a 4-year-old girl in Gaddha Park of Nahargarh. He was arrested from a tea stall in Kota on Saturday.

After being released on bail, he was caught red-handed abusing two girls by local residents in Bhatta Basti. When a police team reached the spot, he attached the policemen with iron rods and escaped.

“In 2004, Sikandar took a child to an isolated place on the pretext of buying him breads. He raped the child and dumped the body in a water tank. He was sentenced to life imprisonment for rape and murder, but he was released on bail in 2015,” said Commissioner of Police Anand Srivastava.

He added Sikandar has nearly 12 criminal cases registered against him. He has been put behind bars for six times. He even attempted to escape from police custody while being brought to court for hearing. When he was released on bail, he committed rapes with two girls in Shashtri Nagar and Nahargarh.

The police have recovered two bogus toy pistols from Sikandar’s room. He used these toys to overpower and threaten children while sexually abusing them.

The police officials said that they would file a chargesheet within 10 days to ensure that the victims get a speedy trial.

“We will finish legal formalities under the case officers scheme. A deputy SP rank officer will supervise the trial work,” said the CP.

Nearly 20 police teams – consisting of 400 policemen – were searching for the accused man for the past seven days.

When his house was searched, the cops found a dairy. On the first page, there was a sketch of a woman with a caption ‘Sikandar alias Maut Ka Kahar’.
