Abortion sought for raped minor

The child has said she was repeatedly raped by her stepfather, who has since been arrested.

The court's decision comes a day after a medical board examined the girl at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences in Rohtak district in India's northern state of Haryana. Earlier on Tuesday, the court asked the doctors' panel to take a call as per their wisdom. "It will be carried out in the evening". The little girl's request for abortion is now in the hands of justice.In recent months, the Supreme Court of India has received several demands, some of the female victims of rape who want to end the pregnancy after the 20th week.

Indian law does not allow terminations after 20 weeks unless doctors certify that the pregnant woman's life is in danger, but the medical experts passed the motion. Later, the victim revealed that she was sexually abused by her stepfather regularly while her mother was away for work.

Nain said the 10-year-old had made a statement to police and was being given counselling and medical care.
