The sixth accused in gang-rape of a girl in Delhi was arrested from his house in Bihar's Aurangabad district on Friday evening.

"A joint team of Bihar Police and Delhi police caught Akshay Thakur from his home in Lahankarma village in Tandwa police station of Aurangabad district," Superintendent of Police, Aurangabad, Pranav Kumar told PTI.

The SP said that Bihar police was keeping a watch over Thakur's house. "The police got a tip-off that Akshay has come home and nabbed him from there," Kumar said.

He said Thakur, the son of a marginal farmer Saryu Singh, would be produced in the court of chief judicial magistrate for transit remand to Delhi.

The accused, a matriculate from Tandwa government school, had left village for Chhattisgarh for work and had gone to Delhi last year for livelihood.

The joint team of Delhi police and Bihar police had detained his father and younger brother Abhay Singh on Wednesday and put them to rigorous questioning about the absconder.

They were, however, let off later.
