A 22-year-old man was arrested on Monday for allegedly raping his younger sister for almost a year and molesting another sibling in west Delhi's Tilak Nagar area, police said.

The accused told police that he had been raping his 17-year-old sister and also molested his 13-year-old sister from last April, a senior police officer said.

Their father had died. Their mother was bedridden and the brother took advantage of this, he said.
