A mi­nor girl re­cently lodged a rape case af­ter she gave birth to a baby. She had not re­alised she was preg­nant af­ter the in­ci­dent. The 17-year-old girl is a stu­dent.

She told the po­lice that a man took her to an iso­lated area in Kalyan and raped her re­peat­edly. He dropped her near her house and fled. She said she was un­con­scious­ness and does not re­mem­ber any­thing. Af­ter more than a month, she had se­vere stom­ach pain. She saw a doc­tor, who pre­scribed her painkillers.

S Tadakhe, of­fi­cer from Khadak­pada po­lice sta­tion, said, “When the girl com­plained of un­bear­able pain, a sonog­ra­phy was done. The doc­tor told her that she was preg­nant.” A few days ago, the girl de­liv­ered a baby and lodged a com­plaint on Fri­day.
