AKIPRESS.COM - A 10-year-old Indian rape victim and the baby girl she gave birth to are doing fine, her doctor told the BBC.

Dr Dasari Harish said her surgery was initially scheduled for Monday, but it was moved to Thursday morning after she developed high blood pressure.

The girl was denied permission to abort by the Supreme Court last month. Her story made headlines in India.

But she is not aware she has given birth. She was told she had a big stone in her stomach which caused the bulge.

The girl alleges she was raped by her uncle, who has been arrested. Her pregnancy was discovered in mid-July when she complained of stomach ache and her parents took her to hospital.
