The family of a teenage girl, who injected her boyfriend’s HIV-positive blood into her body to prove her love for him, has sued her boyfriend.
The 15-year-old girl from Assam in northeast India made headlines news over the rash decision. It’s reported that the pair met through Facebook and had been together for around three and a half years before she injected herself.
They both had tried to run away together on multiple occasions in the past but the girl’s parents had tracked them down to bring their daughter home each time, Kalinga TV reports.
In a development, the boyfriend has been detained by the police while the girl is understood to be under the watch of doctors. The girl is reported to have been aware of the risk she was taking when she used the syringe to inject herself, although there is no information yet on whether or not her boyfriend was aware of what her intentions were.
