The parents of a pregnant 13-year-old rape victim from Mumbai seeking the Supreme Court permission to abort her baby.

The girl is 30 weeks pregnant.

However, the Indian law allows terminations after 20 weeks only if the mother's life is in danger.

Reports say that the pregnancy was discovered after her parents took her to a doctor to seek treatment for obesity.

The girl alleges she was raped by her father's colleague, who has been arrested.

Her case comes just days after a 10-year-old, also a rape victim, gave birth to a baby girl in the northern city of Chandigarh.
