A 10-year-old girl in the Rohtak district of Haryana has reportedly been continually raped by her stepfather and is said to be five months into her pregnancy.
This incident came to the forefront after she was admitted to the Civil Hospital at Rohtak recently.
The girl’s mother is a daily-wage labourer and had married her husband’s brother after his death. This implies that the girl’s stepdad is also her paternal uncle. The girl was taken to the Rohtak Civil Hospital by her mother for a check-up recently, where a doctor confirmed that she was pregnant.
The girl who was totally broken down revealed to her mother that she was repeatedly raped by her stepfather. The mother then took the girl to a police station to lodge a complaint. The girl’s stepfather was arrested on the basis of this complaint and has been booked under relevant sections of the law.
Rohtak has witnessed several brutal rapes and sexual crimes in the recent times. On Saturday, it was reported that seven men had not only gang-raped a woman in the district but also mutilated her, killed her and then ran over her body.
Earlier, a Dalit woman was gang-raped not once but twice. She had said that she was raped for the second time by the same men as she had refused to take back the first case of rape.
