Police in Rewa district of Madhya Pradesh are contemplating a DNA test to get to the bottom of a case after 16-year-old girl’s family lodged a complaint alleging she was raped by a 12-year-old relative which has left her pregnant.

The medical examination of the girl on November 12 revealed that the Class IX dropout was raped. But the medical tests of the accused eighth standard boy on November 14 that suggested that he was incapable of having sexual intercourse and impregnating a female has foxed policemen probing the case.

During questioning, the girl told the police that she was raped repeatedly by the boy six months ago.

The boy denied her allegations and insisted that he was not the culprit and that the girl was also friendly with some other boys.

The Sohagi police are now contemplating to get the DNA tests of both the accused minor and the six-month-old foetus.

“We’ll soon try and get permission for conducting the DNA tests of the accused and the foetus in the alleged rape victim’s womb to arrive at the truth,” investigating officer and Sohagi police sub inspector Mithilesh Yadav told Hindustan Times.

The case was lodged by the girl’s family first at Rewa Mahila Thana on November 11, but the investigations were transferred to Sohagi police station the next day.

The boy and girl are neighbours living in Sonbarsa village of Rewa’s Sohagi police station area.
