CHANDIGARH: The Punjab police today said it has arrested a pastor, allegedly on the run in a rape case, from Delhi airport minutes before he was to take a flight out of the country.

Accused identified as Bajinder Singh had been booked in a rape case filed by a woman in Zirakpur in Mohali in May this year.

The pastor was absconding since registration of the case, said a Zirakpur police official.

He said Singh was arrested from Delhi airport yesterday when he was about to board a flight for England.

Singh was a pastor at a church in Jalandhar district and claimed to be a "healer" as well.

The victim in her complaint had accused the pastor of sexually assaulting her and threatening to upload the video of her sexual assault on social media if she lodged a complaint against him.
