Belagavi, dhns: A victim of child marriage, who escaped from her maternal home, and got admitted in children’s home has scored 94.16 per cent marks in II PU exams in the Arts stream.

The girl had scored 98.4 per cent marks in SSLC and had secured admission at a PU college. However, her parents got her married off despite she being a minor, in July 2022. Undaunted, the girl called Child Helpline 1098, which came to her aid. Women and Child Development Department officials reached her home and initially got her admitted at a Santwana Kendra.
