A 10-year-old minor girl from Chandigarh whose abortion petition was refused by the Supreme Court gave birth to a baby girl at a government hospital in Chandigarh on Thursday.
It was reported that the apex court refused the petition of the minor to abort the child after she was 32-week-old pregnant.
Dr. Dasari Harish said in a statement, “The minor girl delivered a baby through C-section this morning. The infant’s weight is 2.2 kg and it has been admitted to neo natal ICU. As far as the girl is concerned, she is stable and will be kept in a separate room”.
It was learnt that the victim was repeatedly raped by her uncle who got arrested after a complaint was filed against him.
The incident was reported when the girl complained of stomach ache on July 15.
Although, the doctors have said that both the mother and the child are safe.
