It has been reported that, the girl was sexually assaulted by her father.

The incident came to light when the survivor and her mother approached the government hospital for an abortion. However, since she was six months pregnant medical termination of the fetus would put her life in danger.

She’s yet to decide her next step as she’ll deliver a child in another two weeks,” said an official of the Child Welfare Committee.
