A 13-year-old girl, who was reported to be pregnant on Saturday after being allegedly raped by a married man here, delivered a girl child at a Panchkula hospital on Sunday.


Assistant sub-inspector Karan Singh Rana said: "Suspect Deepak, who is a Balmiki Majri resident, was produced before the duty magistrate on Sunday and has been remanded in police custody for two days."

He said the police were also on the lookout for his accomplice Mohit, who was allegedly providing him accommodation for the sordid act.

Local residents said Deepak was married with a daughter, adding that the victim, a Class-6 student, had lost her father a few years ago. They said as her mother was mentally challenged, she was being looked after by her grandmother who was eking out a living by doing odd jobs in houses.

The incident had surfaced when the victim had developed pain in the abdomen and her grandmother had taken her to the civil hospital for check up on Friday. After doctors diagnosed her to be pregnant, the victim had reportedly told her grandmother that the accused was exploiting her sexually for the past several months.

She had said that she was scared of the suspect, as he had threatened her against divulging details to anyone.
