The Bombay High Court on Monday rejected a plea by a Mumbai couple who sought to abort their 25-week unborn child because it had a congenital heart defect.

The much-awaited ruling by a division bench comprising justices PB Mujmudar and AA Sayyad came after Haresh and Niketa Mehta approached it with the plea that they be permitted to medically terminate their unborn child.
