A babysitter betrayed the trust if his friend and raped his young daughter, sending her to the hospital, according to police in India.

Delhi police said that they have arrested 21-year-old Santosh Rai after being accused of repeatedly raping the 1-year-old daughter of his friend.

Rai is facing charges of rape and grievous bodily harm.

He was booked into jail pending a bail hearing in 14 days.

According to the police investigation, Rai became friends with the parents of the 1-year-old victim.

Several weeks ago, Rai began babysitting the girl while her parents were at work.

On Monday, when the mother of the girl came home, she noticed that the child was bleeding heavily from her private parts.

The mother locked Rai in a bedroom and called her husband and the police.

The girl was taken to the Safdarjung Hospital, where she is said to be in critical condition.

A medical exam revealed that the girl was repeatedly raped.
