The cases of Child Abuse and Related Crimes that are reported have skyrocketed in recent times. Apart from all sorts of crime against women, child abuse(girl) has taken the forefront scene.
Cases that shame the humanity that we know of. Recently a similar incident was reported from the China.
A 40-year-old man was arrested after he brought a 12-year-old girl to a hospital, saying she was three months pregnant and needed a routine check-up.
He tried to pass off the little girl as his 20-year-old wife. But a member of staff at the hospital in Xuzhou, China said: “It’s obvious she is just a child”.

The pair were accompanied on the trip to Xuzhou City Central Hospital, in East China’s Jiangsu province, by another woman, claiming to be the girl’s mother-in-law.
Medics immediately called the police when the two adults tried to pass off the girl as a twenty-year-old woman.
She couldn’t speak Mandarin, meaning docs were unable to question her about her age. A staff member said: “She is certainly not anywhere near 20 years old.”
