The Indian boy made allegations against the 18-year-old.
A 14-year-old Indian boy becomes a father after having sex with an 18-year-old girl. On Friday 24th March 2017, police conducted paternity tests which revealed the news.
They confirmed that the Indian boy, a Standard 8 student, became the father to a baby girl, aged two months. The boy hails from Kerala, roughly 200 kilometres (approx 124 miles) from Thiruvananthapuram.
However, despite being four years older than him, the 18-year-old girl filed a case against him. She claimed that the boy had raped her. Therefore, police took the 14-year-old in for questioning.
Asked about the incident, the Indian boy made allegations against the 18-year-old. He reportedly claimed that she had raped him. Now, Kerala police have filed a new case; this time against the girl.
