Kollam: A sixteen-year-old girl delivered a baby at her residence in Kulathupuzha. Later, the girl’s mother arrived at the hospital with the baby, affirming that she is the mother of it. However, the hospital authorities found the mother's claims a lie and informed the police.

Police informed that the minor girl, who delivered the child was a rape survivor in a POCSO case registered in 2016.
