Raped Indian girl, 10, gives birth. India child rape victim allowed to abort. The scale of abuse in India . A child under 16 is raped every 155 minutes, a child under 10 every 13 hours. More than 10,000 children were raped in 2015.

The baby of a 13 -year-old girl, who was allegedly raped by her father’s colleague, has died two days after doctors in Mumbai delivered him despite a court order stating the In view of the trauma she suffered, the Indian supreme court ordered that the victim can be allowed to terminate the pregnancy.

The BBC's Geeta Pandey in Delhi says this is the third case in the past few months involving raped Indian children who became pregnant and sought the court's permission for a termination.

Last month, a 10-year-old rape victim gave birth to a baby girl in the northern city of Chandigarh. She too was 32 weeks pregnant, but she was denied permission to abort after a doctors' panel said that termination of her pregnancy would be "too risky".

In May, a similar case was reported from the northern state of Haryana where a 10-year-old, allegedly raped by her stepfather, was allowed to abort. She was about 20 weeks pregnant, doctors said.

None of the girls can be named for legal reasons.

These cases came to light so late because the children themselves were not aware of their condition and their parents also missed the obvious signs because they couldn't imagine that their daughters could be pregnant at such a young age, our correspondent says.
