A man who was absconding for 25 years after raping a woman was arrested in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district, police said Tuesday.

Khushal Hussain, a resident of Banullah village, was booked under various sections of the Ranbir Penal Code including rape in 1993, they said.

However, he managed to escape and was evading arrest since then, they added.

Hussain was held by a special police team from Mendhar area, a police officer said.
