The Kerala High Court has allowed medical termination of 24 weeks’ pregnancy of a 15-year-old victim under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act at the SAT Hospital, Thiruvananthapuram.
The court directed the superintendent of the hospital to take immediate measures to constitute a medical team for conducting the termination. The court passed the order recently on a petition filed by a parent of the victim.
