Chandigarh, Sept. 25 -- A 15-year-old who was recently found to be eight months pregnant after being allegedly raped by her brother and a friend is in trauma, but her counselling process has begun.

Her ordeal began when her brother, high on drugs, assaulted her.

In her statement to the police, the Class 9 student said she was sexually exploited by her brother, the sole earning member of the family, in December 2019.

Later in January 2020, his friend, who visited her home regularly, sexually abused her. He told the girl that he was also a Class 9 student.

Even as the two raped her, the victim could not complain against them as her mother was visually impaired and her elder sister had left home after getting married in January this year....
