BULANDSHAHR: Just a month after the brutal gang-rape in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr District, a similar incident has come to the fore here wherein a teen was forced to undergo abortion by the culprit’s family after being allegedly raped.

The incident took place five months ago when the victim was allegedly raped by a boy in Bhaipura village. As per the victim, the accused threatened her not to disclose the incident to anyone.

However, the victim was days after the incident admitted in a nursing home when her health deteriorated. It was then revealed that the victim was pregnant. 

“I did not tell anyone out of fear. The mother of the rapist told me that she would pay me Rs. 1000 if I undergo abortion,” the victim said.

Dharmendra Yadav, a police official, said the victim told them that she was raped by a person, who lives in her neighbourhood, five months ago.

“She had an abortion at the nursing home last night. We have the aborted foetus with us and have started the investigation,” he said.

The police have registered a case in this regard and have also started searching for the accused. The cops have also arrested the nursing home officials for doing the abortion.

The state’s health department has seized the nursing home.
