Mangaluru: A teen who was sexually assaulted and impregnated by her father secured first class in her SSLC exams.

The girl was eight months pregnant when appeared for her SSLC exams.

It has been reported that, the girl was sexually assaulted by her father.

The incident came to light when the survivor and her mother approached the government hospital for an abortion. However, since she was six months pregnant medical termination of the fetus would put her life in danger. Doctors, who learnt about her being sexually assaulted, filed a case with police,” said Renni D’Souza, president, CWC.

Her father was arrested under the Pocso Act and she was sent to the district child protection unit for counselling and rehabilitation. “She was counselled on writing SSLC exams and adoption of her baby. She was given enough confidence and tutoring and faced the exams without any problems.”

The district administration provided special arrangements for her. “This success has brought her happiness amid the trauma. She is content with her achievement. She’s yet to decide her next step as she’ll deliver a child in another two weeks,” said an official of the Child Welfare Committee. The girl thanked officials of the district administration, education department, police and CWC for their support. She scored B+ in two subjects and C+ in two others.
