The woman’s family claimed they were not aware of the alleged rape or her pregnancy. “On Thursday she started screaming in pain,” her father said. “After a while, she delivered a stillborn,” he added.

“We didn’t go to the hospital as my daughter was fine. She and I decided to lodge a case,” he said. “We took the foetus with us to prove our account,” he said.

The family members came to know about the incident on Friday. On Saturday evening, her mother took her to the police station and demanded justice for her daughter.

The woman told the police that she was raped about six months ago. She had gone to the forest to collect woods where a man raped her at gun-point. The man threatened her and told her not to share the incident with anyone. Fearing death, she did not even tell her parents about the incident. However, when Manoj learned of her pregnancy, on July 13th he forced her to take some oral pills.

SHO Devendra Kumar Sharma said, “She said that on July 13, when Manoj learnt of her pregnancy, he reached her home when she was alone and forced her to take contraceptive pills.”

The foetus has been sent to the forensic lab for examination.

In a similar incident, in April this year, a 20-year-old woman reached the police station in Madhya Pradesh’s Satna district carrying her four-month-old aborted foetus in a bag. The woman alleged that four men raped her and she was forced to abort her baby.
