In another incident, a maid who was allegedly raped by her neighbour has demanded death punishment for the offender who was arrested here Sunday.

"We received a complaint of rape Sunday following which a medical examination was conducted on the victim. The report is awaited. We have registered a complaint, including the name of the person mentioned by the victim," said an officer of Haridevpur police station in the city.

The incident happened Saturday afternoon when the victim, a mother of one, was alone in her house.
