Malap­pu­ram: The Dis­trict Child Pro­tec­tion Unit has in­ter­vened in one more case of child mar­riage and got a court in­junc­tion or­der to the fam­ily of the girl. DCPU of­fi­cers in­ter­vened in the case on Fri­day when a pre-mar­riage func­tion was held at Pon­nani. “The girl was a mi­nor and a pre-mar­riage func­tion in which cer­tain gift was given to her. We ap­proached the fam­ily and handed over an in­junc­tion or­der pre­vent­ing the par­ents from con­duct­ing the mar­riage be­fore the girl turns ma­jor,” said a DCPU out­reach worker who ac­com­pa­nied the child de­vel­op­ment project of­fi­cer. As per lat­est fig­ures with the au­thor­i­ties, DCPU has in­ter­vened in 26 cases in 2018.
