a child marriage like this is voidable at the option of the child in the marriage till the time he/she attains majority. however, it is does not become void automatically. if the people who got married does not have a problem with the marriage it continues to survive.

on the other hand, any adult who participates in such a marriage, including an adult bride/bridegroom/parents who let such marriage take place will be punishable by 3 months imprisonment.
