India allows abortion for 10-year-old rape victim

Indian man 'gang-raped ex-girlfriend, drove over her with car and left her for dogs to eat'

Just a few days later, a 22-year-old woman from Sikkim was allegedly raped by three men in a moving auto in Gurgaon and thrown out on a road in Delhi. A total of 10,854 cases of rapes of children were reported in 2015, but activists say that many more likely went unreported.

But those numbers are still considered only a fraction of the actual rape cases across the socially conservative country. The police said the victim's head had been smashed to hide her identity.

The crime came to light when she complained of a stomach ache to her mother, a migrant laborer from Bihar.

Police said the men took turns raping the woman, using an iron rod to violate her as the bus drove around the city for nearly an hour.

The mother said she did not believe when first told that her husband - the younger brother of her first husband who died of kidney failure - had raped the girl many times.

The accused has since been arrested under section 506 (Criminal intimidation) of the IPC and relevant section of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO Act) 2012. Her face had also been smashed with a brick, and a vehicle ran over her body so she could not be identified, according to a report in the Hindustan Times. The police have requested the girl to come forward as they could not find her at the address mentioned in the letter. Earlier on Tuesday, the court asked the doctors' panel to take a call as per their wisdom. That attack sparked public outcry and prompted the government to at least double prison terms for rape to 20 years and to criminalize voyeurism, stalking and the trafficking of women.

In yet another deadly gang rape case, in the western city of Pune, a court last week sentenced the three perpetrators to death.

India has a gruesome record on rape.

Police said there were no official records of the child's birth date.

The victim's father told NDTV: "She passed her Class 10 exams but couldn't continue her studies because we didn't have money". "The victim blaming begins with the police", Kumari said.
