12-year-old boy from Kochi is confirmed as the youngest father in India

Date:

A 12-year-old boy from Kochi in Kerala was confirmed as the youngest father in the country.

The mother, who is only 16 years old, had given birth to the child in November 2016 at a hospital in Ernakulam and a medical test was conducted recently to find out about the father of the child.

After the delivery of the child, the girl had claimed that the 12-year-old boy was the father. The paternity of the child was confirmed after a DNA test was conducted on both the child and the boy.

The girl had alleged that she was raped by the boy following which a case has been registered against him, they said.

However, the boy blamed the girl for the relationship and hence a case has been registered against the young mother, under section 7 (Sexual Assault) and 8 (not less than 3 years which may extend to 5 years and fine) of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, police said.

“We produced the statements in court and registered a case,” Kalamassery Circle Inspector, S Jayakrishnan, who is the investigating officer

Both the boy and the 16-year old girl are relatives and a case under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POSCO) Act was registered on the basis of the statement given by the girl, the police said. The two were later let off on bail.

Meanwhile, the families of the two children and the hospital where the medical tests were conducted are not saying anything about the issue.
