Periyapatna: A 15-year-old girl delivered a baby boy in a hospital, after allegedly being abused for months by two men who lured her into a relationship. The girl lived with her elder sister helping the latter in post natal care, when the duo befriended her.

The girl from Ganganakuppe in Periyapatna taluk was repeatedly abused by two men named Raju and Swamy in Kodlipet of Kodagu district. Both men stayed near her elder sister’s house and used the opportunity to lure the 15-year-old into a relationship.

After repeatedly abusing the girl, they issued death threats to prevent her from revealing the incident. The girl returned to her native and her parents kept her in solitary confinement fearing societal backlash.

The incident came to light, when the girl delivered a baby three days ago at a hospital. The parents informed the police of the incident, with the help of the hospital staff.

Bettadapura Police have registered a case and nabbed the accused duo. Further investigations are under progress.
