Napak police have apprehended Michael Okia, 18, on charges of alleged aggravated defilement of a 3-year-old girl. Okia, a resident of Locwae village in Apeitolim Sub County, was arrested on Tuesday following accusations made by Marino Lochap, the father of the victim.

The incident is said to have occurred on July 30, 2023, at around 4:00 pm, while the parents were away for prayers. It is alleged that the suspect lured the girl to a house within the same locality and sexually abused her.
