The mother, who is a migrant labourer from Bihar working in Haryana's Rohtak district, had taken her child to the doctor after the girl fell ill. The doctor the told the mother that her child was pregnant.
According to reports, the 10-year-old was repeatedly raped by her stepfather, who is reportedly also her paternal uncle. The man allegedly threatened the girl, who kept quiet about the abuse.
A case has been registered and the police have arrested the accused.
This incident comes to light shortly after a young woman from Haryana's Sonepat district was allegedly abducted, gang raped and brutally killed earlier this week.
Police have made arrests in the case.
The woman, aged around 22 years, went missing on 9 May, as per the complaint filed by her family. Those arrested have been identified as Sumit and Vikas. Police officials said that Sumit was a neighbour of the victim in Sonepat and had been stalking her. He was pressurising her to marry him but she had refused. Police officials alleged that Sumit planned the gang rape and murder to teach a lesson to the woman.
