Pregnant girl detained by police for not revealing husband
A 17-year-old girl in Mathiang village of Aweil, Northern Bahr El-Ghazal State, was taken to the police by her parents for refusing to reveal the man who impregnated her.
The young girl was taken to the police station by her father, Garang Yuel, and her cousin, Yai Ater Malith.
They said, “She is pregnant with an unknown man, and we asked her to tell us who the father of the unborn child [is].”
However, after the girl revealed the person who impregnated her, she was released from detention and handed over to her husband.
According to unnamed sources, the girl escaped from her husband’s home a few days later and went back to her parents while bleeding.
However, after she reached home, her parents took her to the hospital, where it was confirmed by the doctors that she may have carried out an abortion.
According to the source, the man who impregnated the teenager is yet to be apprehended.
