Minor delivers baby, alleges rape

A youth in his twenties was charged with rape after a 15 year-old girl delivered a baby girl. The mother alleged that the youth had rapped her, leading to the pregnancy.

The complaint was lodged after the girl gave birth to a child at Mayo Hospital on Tuesday. According to the complaint lodged by the girl, the accused named Shidhtu had once lured her to drive in an autorickshaw. He later on took her to a deserted place near Waddhamma, where he first raped her around nine months ago. The girl claimed that the youth, who the girl claimed was a resident of  Ambedkar Nagar in Wadi, even threatened her.

Police said that later on the accused became a regular visitor  to her residence. Wadi police said that from the past many years, the victim and her younger broher had been living with their grandparents, since their father left them and their mother married for the second time.

Cops suspect that the girl is a bit mentally disturbed. The police where informed by the police authorities and neighbours when the girl complained of labour pains on Tuesday. Wadi police are still searching for the accused.
