PALANPUR: In a shocking case of incest, a 17-year-old girl, who was allegedly raped by her elder brother, delivered a baby girl in a village of Patan district.
The girl’s 19-year-old brother, who raped her for nine months in Sariyad village, was booked for the crime on Wednesday. Though the girl’s health is fine, the newborn’s condition is critical and she has been put on life-support system.

Police sub-inspector, Vagdod station, N R Patel said the crime came to light when the girl delivered the baby in Dharpur Hospital on Monday. Doctors got suspicious when the girl refused to divulge the name of baby’s father. They informed the Vagdod that started investigating the matter.

“We have recorded the girl’s statement, wherein she alleged that her elder brother had been raping her for the last nine months. He sexually assaulted her in the night when everyone was asleep. He used to gag her mouth and then her. She has two brothers,” Patel said. Her parents and brothers work as farm labourers.

The girl’s brother is, however, on the run.

Police have booked her brother under Section 376 and sections of Prevention of Sexual Offences Against Children (POCSO) would be invoked after the girl’s age is confirmed.

Resident medical officer, Dharpur Medical College and Hospital, Dr Hitesh Gosai said, “We have given the the samples for DNA test of the newborn.”

Meanwhile, the girl’s mother told media persons that she didn’t realize that her daughter was pregnant and assumed that she had a tumour in the abdomen. “It was only on Monday when she delivered the baby we got to know everything,” she said.

She also said that her son had committed a ‘criminal blunder’, but urged not to arrest him as they are from a poor and illiterate family.
