Minor girl gets pregnant after two men rape her

A woman made a complaint on Tuesday to the Mandanayakanahalli police in Nelamangala taluk of Bangalore Rural district that her minor daughter was gang-raped some six months ago.

Medical examination of the 14-year-old girl, a school dropout, has revealed that she is now four-and-a-half-months’ pregnant.

According to the police, the victim was living with her mother, a daily wage worker, at a village near Mandanayakanahalli on Bangalore-Tumkur Road.

On Tuesday, the victim's mother noticed her daughter was gaining weight.

The girl was also constantly complaining of stomach ache. The mother took the girl to a nearby hospital where the doctor confirmed she was pregnant.

The shocked mother questioned her daughter, who claimed that she was raped by two men, Ganesh, 36, a tailor, and Ramesh, 30, a labourer, both residents of the same village.
She told her mother she was raped by the duo around six months ago at Ganesh’s house, the police added.

A senior officer said that the mother then approached the police. However, during questioning, the girl came up with a different version. The girl had had sex with the two men on mutual consent.

She frequented Ganesh’s house on the pretext of giving clothes for stitching and they both used to have sex. She also had a physical relationship with Ramesh.

After arresting the duo, the police will be able to get details of the incident, the officer said. “As of now, the girl is making vague statements, so we cannot come to any conclusion. But as she is a minor, a case has been registered under the Pocso Act and we are on the lookout for the duo,” the officer added.
