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.

Police have since arrested two men in the case, including one suspect the victim's parents alleged had been stalking their daughter, and they were searching for six more suspects, Rohtak police official Navdeep Virk said. The woman's head was smashed with a brick and a vehicle run over her before the body was dumped. The forensic team that conducted the investigation said that the victim was gang raped. She died two weeks later at a hospital in Singapore.

The police have appealed the girl to come forward as they could not locate her at the address mentioned in the letter.

She later became known as Nirbhaya, or the "fearless one", and her case led to protests across India coupled with intense media coverage and scrutiny over the country's problem of sexual violence against women.
