Chandigarh police on Wednesday arrested another maternal uncle in relation to the 10-year-old rape case.

Earlier, the DNA of the baby girl delivered last month by the victim, did not match with the elder uncle who was being considered as the only accused in the case.

The incident of rape with the minor had come to light in July when the girl had complained of stomach ache. She was taken to a hospital, where her mother was told that the girl was pregnant.

The girl’s mother came to know from her daughter that it was her maternal uncle who had committed the act.

The police had registered a case at the Sector 39 police station and the maternal uncle was arrested, but his DNA sample did not match with the newborn.

The uncle, who was staying next to the victim’s house, is said to have confessed that he started raping his niece before his brother.

The case had hit national headlines in July, after the Supreme Court had dismissed a plea seeking termination of the 10-year-old girl’s 32 week pregnancy.
