Kandhamal: A minor girl was found to be six months pregnant during a medical check-up in Kandhamal district today.

Her father has alleged that she has been raped by her uncle (maternal aunt's husband) during her stay at the latter's house last year.

Reportedly, the girl is studying at a residential school in Jharsuguda and had visited her uncle's house in Ganjam during her summer holidays in May last year.

She had stayed there for nearly one month, when her uncle established physical relationship with her.

After coming to know about the incident, the girl's father has lodged a complaint at the local police station.
