Jodhpur, August 23 (KMS): A 12-year-old girl, raped by two minor boys in her village school, has delivered a baby in a Jodhpur hospital, an official said on Monday.
According to Kashmir Media Service, the girl delivered the baby on Sunday night after she was admitted to the hospital by her parents, Rajasthan’s Child Welfare Committee (CWC) President, Dhanpat Gurjar said, adding both the girl and her baby are fine.
