The Delhi High Court on Wednesday directed the All India Institute of Medical Sciences to form a medical board to decide if the pregnancy of a 15-year-old girlcould be terminated safely. The girl, who is over four months pregnant, said that she wanted to terminate the pregnancy to pursue her studies.

The girl had earlier run away from home and got married. The court directed the AIIMS to submit its report by December 22.
