Hubballi: A 15-year-old girl was raped by a relative in Siddaramnagar, within Keshwapur police station limits. The incident came to light when the girl started vomiting daily. The worried parents took her to the Karnataka Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), thinking she may have some acidity or indigestion problems, but they were shocked to learn that she was four months pregnant.
The girl later revealed that her 19-year-old brother (her uncle’s son) had raped her. The Keshwapur police have registered a case under the Protection Of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO)and arrested the accused, who used to live in Goa. According to the police, the accused has been sent for a medical examination and will be produced before the judge.
