Hisar, Feb 21: A local court on Thursday convicted a man for raping his niece and sentenced him to life imprisonment and a fine of Rs 15,000.
Hisar Additional District and Sessions Judge Dr Pankaj held the accused, a resident of a village of Hansi sub-division, guilty on the basis of forensic as well as other evidences.
According to the prosecution, a complaint was filed in August last year after the 15-year-old orphaned girl was found pregnant. ASI Saroj and her team investigated the case and arrested her paternal uncle.
The court had allowed abortion in the case. However, as there was risk in aborting 27 weeks, five days foetus, doctors did not agree to it. (UNI)
