Youth held for making teen girl pregnant

By Correspondent

A 20-year-old youth has been arrested and remanded in Sri Lanka for impregnating his 13-year-old girlfriend, ‘Lanka Hot News’ has reported.

Police investigations began after a complaint was lodged with Child and Women’s Bureau of the police last Friday.

During the absence of the victim’s parents, the suspect had taken the underage girl to an isolated home in the same area and had sex with her.

When her parents observed some changes in her body, they took her for a medical check-up which confirmed she was pregnant.
