New Delhi, Aug 12 (IANS) The Delhi police officials Tuesday found themselves in a quandary when a pregnant girl alleged that she was raped by 10-12 people but her medical report ruled out any sexual attack. The police said they received a call Tuesday morning made from near the American embassy in the diplomatic enclave of Chankyapuri area. A police control room van took the girl, who claims to be a minor, to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital.

A senior police official told IANS that medical tests performed on the girl showed that there was no sexual assault.

“There are no injury marks on her body. The girl seems mentally retarded and is changing her statement every time she is being inquired about the incident,” the officer said.

The girl, four-month pregnant, arrived in the national capital from Meerut late Monday and is alone. She could not explain how she reached Delhi and if she was accompanied by anyone else. The girl says she is married and her husband lives in Meerut.

“We have not registered a case yet but are taking help of people from NGOs, legal aid and psychiatrics to solve the issue. We have sent a team to Meerut to contact her family,” the officer added.
