Rajasthan Man Arrested for Raping 11-Yr-Old Daughter, HC Refuses Termination of 8-Month Pregnancy

Jaipur: A man was arrested in Rajasthan’s Jaipur on charges of raping his 11-year-old daughter and impregnating her. The minor was found to be eight months pregnant when the incident was reported.

The ghastly incident came to the fore when the 11-year-old victim narrated her ordeal to her uncle which led to the filing of a First Information Report (FIR) in the case.

According to the investigating police officials, the accused raped his daughter for nearly a year after sending his wife and son, to her maternal home.

The accused threatened the victim which forced her to keep mum. Later he sent his pregnant to her mother. The victim told her suffering to her maternal uncle.

Meanwhile, the Rajasthan High Court has turned down the rape victim’s petition to terminate her 32-week pregnancy, stating that such abortion at an advanced stage could “endanger” her life.

In its order, the bench of Justice Anoop Kumar Dhand said the delay by the child in approaching the court “has only further aggravated the said aspect” of termination of pregnancy, and relied on the Medical Board’s statement and existing judgments to turn down the request.

Following the delivery, the child will be sent to a childcare centre.
