Child labour, child abuse, child trafficking, child marriage and child harassment are few sensitive topics that need to be touched on. Despite many laws and regulations against such practices, they remain widespread. And now they can be described only as 'CRIMES'. All the mentioned practices are a part of human rights violation and they should be highly discouraged.
You can sense the same coming by the case of this 12-year-old girl who was brought to the hospital by her claimed 40-year-old husband. But the case isn't as simple as it seems. Have a deep insight into it.
She had not been named. She was brought to a hospital by a 40-year-old man and a woman who said to be her mother-in-law.
The man claimed himself as her husband and the pair reached the hospital for a routine check-up.
She was just a little girl, only 12 years old.
As the doctors suspected some issue as the two adults were trying to pass off the girl as a 20 years old woman.
She wasn't able to speak Mandarin and so she did not give any answers.
It is not confirmed yet but the girl is thought to be a foreign national or bride from South-east Asia.
The girl is thought to be a foreign bride who has been abducted or purchased. For now, the man has been arrested.
