Kalahandi: In yet another shameful and appalling incident, a Class 7 girl student was found pregnant under Dharamgarh police limits here today morning.
Reportedly, the family members had been noticing changes in the girl’s body following which they confronted her. She revealed that she had been allegedly raped by their neighbor, who is a married person. The family members then rushed the girl to MKCG hospital in Berhampur for medical examination and also filed a complaint in connection with the incident.
The police have registered a case under the POCSO act and have detained the accused for further interrogation into the matter.
A similar case had been reported from Narla in Kalahandi on Friday as a class-IX girl student of a residential school had to be rushed to VIMSAR Burla after she complained of profuse bleeding. According to sources, the girl, a native of Bihar had taken abortion pills after which her condition worsened.
