Goodhope police have arrested a 21-year-old woman who reportedly gave her younger sister some pills to terminate her pregnancy.

Things came to light after a teacher took the 17-year-old girl who complained of excruciating pains on her stomach to the clinic and upon examination the nurse discovered some blood stains on the girl’s trousers.

The nurse was allegedly shocked to find a foetus inside the girl’s trousers after she asked her to undress.

The foetus was later certified dead by the medical doctor and the matter was reported to the police.

Assistant Superintendent Bigani Mpindi of Goodhope Police confirmed to The Voice that the matter was reported to their office last Wednesday.

“We are still investigating the matter, we have called the woman aged 21 for questioning. This is a very sensitive issue and all I can say is that we are still on investigations,” Mpindi said.

However, reliable sources revealed that when the girl was questioned by the police she told them that the same morning her sister gave her five Cytotec pills to consume in order to terminate her pregnancy.
