MUZAFFARNAGAR: A POCSO court on Wednesday held a 23-year-old man guilty of raping a minor girl at Kookda village in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar district in 2017.

He fixed September 24 to pronounce the quantum of punishment.

According to prosecution lawyer Dinesh Kumar Sharma, Sajid took the 6-year-old girl to a vacant house at Kookda village on February 11, 2017 on the pretext of giving her Rs 10 for buying toffees, and raped her.
