The Cuddalore police in Tamil Nadu have commenced a probe into an incident wherein a Class 11 student of a government school near Chidambaram gave birth and the body of the infant was found dumped near the school toilet.
Police have started the probe on who impregnated the minor.
The school authorities found the body of the infant near the school toilet on Thursday and informed the Bhuvanagiri police. Police commenced an investigation and on Friday evening they found the girl who admitted that she had given birth to the child.
She said that she had pain and went to the toilet and gave birth to the child. While the girl said that the child was stillborn, police said that it would have died as she delivered it without any assistance.
