MUMBAI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Two Indian men were convicted on Tuesday of raping their 10-year-old niece in a case that hit global headlines when the girl was denied an abortion by India’s top court and had to give birth, local media reported. The girl was 30 weeks pregnant in July when a court in Chandigarh turned down her abortion plea as she was too far advanced. The girl did not know she was pregnant and was unaware she delivered a baby girl in August as her parents told her she was undergoing stomach surgery. The baby was put up for adoption. A court in India on Tuesday found two of the girl’s uncles guilty of rape with sentencing set for later this week, according to the Hindustan Times.
