12-year-old boy becomes India's 'youngest dad' after allegedly raping 16-year-old girl

A 12-year-old boy has fathered a baby girl with a 16-year-old girl in Kerala, India.

According to Dawn via AsiaOne, the boy could be India's youngest dad.

The baby is now two-months old and police have confirmed that the 12-year-old is indeed the father after conducting tests.

The mother is the boy's first cousin and the two were neighbours.

The Child Welfare Committee has taken custody of the child after the girl's family refused to care for her.

The girl accused the boy of raping her.

However, after being questioned, the boy blamed the girl for the relationship and the case has been registered against the young mother.
