12-Year-Old Booked For Impregnating A 17-Year-Old, Becomes The Youngest Father In India

Story here. In certain countries where Sharia is law, girls get stoned to death in essence for being rape victims. While he is at least nit being stoned to death, the idea is the same. Excerpt:

'India is swamped with the human crisis- rapes, molestation, child marriages, gender issues have become an everyday thing.

Recently, a 12-year old boy has been booked under the POCSO Act after a teenaged girl, who gave birth to a baby girl, claimed that he had impregnated her, police said on Monday.

Both the boy and the 17-year old girl are relatives and the case under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act had been registered on the basis of a statement given by her, they said.

Police said they have decided to conduct a DNA test to verify the claim of the girl, who delivered the baby girl in a private hospital recently, that the boy is the father of the child. He would be prosecuted as per the Juvenile Justice Act.'
