A rape case has been registered in the matter of a hearing and speech impaired 19-year-old girl who was found to have been raped as she approached a government hospital in the Bhilwara district of Rajasthan, complaining of stomach pain and bleeding on Monday, police said.
The case was registered against an unknown person with Sadas police station of Chittorgarh district from where the girl belongs, a senior police official said.
During examination on Monday, the girl was found two-months pregnant following which the hospital administration informed the local police and district administration, which arranged for a sign-language expert to know how she fell victim to the crime.
In her interaction with the sign language expert, the teenager victim said she had been raped in an agriculture farm around two months back.
