A 12-year-old girl is fighting for her life after she gave birth to her rapists’ baby – which died soon after being delivered.
The child, who has not been named, was rushed to hospital after she complained that she had a stomach ache.
Unsuspecting to the family, the pre-teen was actually seven months pregnant.
She had been raped by a neighbour, who allegedly threatened her to keep the ordeal a secret.
Doctors delivered her baby, a little girl, but it tragically died as it was two-months premature.
Times of India reported that the mother herself is in a critical condition.
The grisly attack took place in Rudrapur, Nagar in India.

A 22-year-old man has been arrested and tested for DNA, a police spokesman said.
He has been accused of grooming the girl with chocolates before subjecting her to a sickening sexual assault.
Police spokesman KG Mathpal said: "According to her, the man lured her with chocolates, allegedly raped her and threatened her against revealing it.
"Until now she had never told her parents about the alleged rape or the pregnancy. Her mother said she skirted questions about the visible changes inherent body."
He added: "Investigators are on the case."
The suspect has been charged with rape, according to reports.
Meanwhile, elsewhere in India, a 90-year-old grandmother was raped by a 33-year-old suspect in the days before Christmas.
The victim kept the ordeal a secret, fearing her attacker would return.
But having since developed a severe illness she confided in her daughter-in-law, who alerted investigators.
