Closely on the heels of Ambala City minor girl getting pregnant, yet another 15-year-old of nearby Naraingarh subdivision has reportedly got pregnant following repeated rapes by two youths.

On the complaint of the victim's mother to the Naraingarh assistant commissioner of police, the police have registered a case under Section 376 (rape) against Balvinder alias Kala and Amit alias Danny.

The victim is a Class-11 student of Government Senior Secondary School, Bahari Kalan, near Naraingarh, and a resident of Pinjora village near Thana Chaper. The suspects also hail from the same village.

Sources said that on Saturday, the girl complained of pain in the abdomen and was taken to the civil hospital, where doctors found her pregnant by several months.

They said the victim's ultrasound was done at Panchkula and after the rape was confirmed, a case was registered at the Naraingarh police station late on Saturday evening.

After the detection of the victim's pregnancy, she is stated to have informed her parents that the duo had been exploiting her sexually for the past several months and used to threaten her against divulging details to anyone.

The victim is stated to have told her mother that she was molested in April for the first time when she was alone at her house, adding that she was raped repeatedly thereafter.

Officials said the accused had been identified and would be arrested soon.

The Ambala City police on Saturday had booked a married man for raping a minor girl repeatedly near Nahan House, following which she had become pregnant.
