The pregnant 11-year-old, who was admitted to a city hospital on Thursday, is expected to return to her interior home this weekend since she is not ready to give birth.

The child was transferred from a hospital to have a "check-up", a source said. Authorities had launched an investigation into the incident, since the case would be considered one of statutory rape because of the girl's age. But yesterday, this newspaper could not verify whether the police are investigating the matter.

The child has since told authorities that the father of the child is a schoolmate.
