Based on a complaint given by the victim’s mother, the police have registered a case against the absconding uncle under sections of the IPC including rape, and criminal intimidation and under section 6 of the POCSO Act at the Kherki Daula police station.
In her complaint, the woman lives with her family in a village under the Kherki Daula police station area and both she and her husband work in a private company. Their 15-year-old daughter is a student in class 10 at a nearby school.
The woman alleged that her brother-in-law also lives in a rented house in their neighbourhood and called her daughter on some pretext to his house and raped her.
“On August 26, my daughter’s health deteriorated due to which I took her to ESI Hospital in Gurugram from where I came to know about her pregnancy,” the mother told the police.
Seeing her condition, the ESI doctors shifted her to the Civil Hospital and informed the police. At the hospital, the girl gave birth to a boy.
