According to a report in Hindustan Times, the incident came to light when the Class 9 student complained of abdominal pain and was rushed to the hospital. During the medical examination, the minor girl was found to be eight months pregnant, this is when the doctors informed the police.
During questioning, the victim told the cops that her brother and his friend, who is a Class 10 student, had been sexually exploiting her since December last year and both had raped her multiple times. The victim's elder sister was married in January this year, while her mother, who is visually impaired, was unaware of her daughter's plight, a police official said.
The victim's mother told cops that she was unaware of the sexual exploitation until her daughter was medically examined by the doctors. The woman claimed that her son is a drug addict and used to regularly pick up fights at home. Her husband had deserted the family in 2012.
