A 60-year-old pastor at a church in Nagaland was arrested Monday for allegedly raping a 10-year-old girl in Assam's Karbi Anglong district. Police also arrested a 35-year-old man for recording the crime and uploading it on social media.

The pastor was identified as Chandra Kumar Pradhan. On October 29, he called the girl to a garden near his house, where he raped her and then fled. He had been on the run since then.

Sub-divisional police officer (Bokajan), Swetank Mishrasaid, "The girl did not say anything to her parents on the day of the assault. She told them on October 31, and they filed a complaint on the same day ."

Mishra said the pastor, after fleeing his home, changed his location several times and was finally arrested from a hotel in Nagaland's Kohima district. Pradhan has been charged for rape under the IPC and aggravated sexual assault under the Pocso Act.
