A man facing trial for repeatedly raping a minor, who became pregnant and gave birth to a child, has been acquitted by a Delhi court after the DNA test of the baby turned out to be negative.

Additional Sessions Judge Virender Bhat said the test “totally exculpates the accused”. He said: “The report throws in the probability that the prosecutrix was having sexual intercourse with somebody else.” — PTI
