The report also said the girl is often left home alone whenever her mother goes to work.

Meanwhile, the mother of the rape victim said she could not believe her husband did such a terrible thing to her daughter.

The abortion request took place in district court because the girl was more than 20 weeks pregnant, CNN said.

An Indian man allegedly raped his ex-girlfriend with at least one other man and then drove her over with a auto in an attempt to hide her identity, police have said. Twenty weeks is the legal abortion limit in India; exceptions are allowed if the mother's life is in danger. "I need to think about their future too", the daily quoted the mother as saying from a hospital in Rohtak, a district in northern Haryana state. Indian law prohibits disclosing the names of rape victims.

The child's family are demanding that doctors from the Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences allow the girl to undergo an abortion.

Fire that destroyed NYC synagogue deliberately set
The Synogogue is located on Norfolk Street in the Lower East Side neighbourhood of Manhattan, close to New York's Chinatown. The Gothic structure was originally built in 1850 as a Baptist church, and was landmarked by the city in 1967.

The girl's mother reported her husband to police after which he was arrested.

In the latest case of sexual violence against women to shock the country, the 20-year-old victim was allegedly kidnapped and drugged by her ex-boyfriend, named by Indian media as Sumit Kumar, and his friend. The police said the victim's head had been smashed to hide her identity. Far fewer cases actually make it to trial, though there are no ready statistics for how many rape-related cases are now in Indian courts.

On Saturday night, a young woman was abducted while returning to her home in the New Delhi suburb of Gurgaon and gang raped by three men in a moving auto before being set free the next morning, police said.

According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), 93 women are raped in India every day, and most of the victims know their perpetrators.

Scrutiny of violence against women in India has grown after 2012 fatal gang-rape of a medical student in New Delhi. "The victim blaming begins with the police", Kumari said.
