New Delhi: On Tuesday, the Supreme Court asked the medical board of a government hospital in Haryana to examine if it would be safe for a 14-year-old girl to terminate her 26-week pregnancy. The bench headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde has asked the medical board to submit its report by next week on abortion of the girl.

The bench ordered the hospital to immediately set up a medical board, comprising three doctors, to examine the feasibility of termination of pregnancy and submit a report by Friday.

The 14-year-old girl, in her plea, has stated that she was raped by her cousin leading to an unwanted pregnancy.
