On Thursday, a 15-year-old rape survivor died of pregnancy-related complications at the district hospital in Uttar Pradesh. The incident took place in the Bareilly district. The girl was seven months pregnant.

According to the girl’s father, the family came to know about the 15-year-old’s pregnancy on December 6, when she was six-months pregnant.

As reported by PTI, the girl’s father had asked for permission from the district administration to abort the pregnancy. However, the permission was denied as she was already six months pregnant. Doctors also reportedly claimed that the police case was also a reason for not granting permission for the abortion.

Dr Subodh Sharma, additional director and superintendent in-charge of the hospital, according to the PTI report, said the girl was brought to the hospital in “serious condition” and her health declined further.

Rohit Singh Sajwan, senior superintendent of police, Bareilly, said, “The post-mortem report says that the death took place due to infection. The viscera of the victim has been preserved.”
