The Asian Age - - Nation -

Ben­galuru, Sept. 15: No­bel lau­re­ate Kailash Sat­yarthi de­manded that the gov­ern­ment should cre­ate a sex of­fend­ers reg­istry in or­der to track child abusers and traf­fick­ers.

In Ben­galuru, the IT cap­i­tal of In­dia, as part of his “Bharat Ya­tra”, Mr Sat­yarthi also called upon the engi­neer­ing com­mu­nity to wage a “tech­nol­ogy war” on child abuse and traf­fick­ing.

The march, which started from Kanyaku­mari on Septem­ber 11 and will con­clude on Oc­to­ber 16 at New Delhi, march aims at mo­bil­is­ing ac­tion against sex­ual abuse and traf­fick­ing of chil­dren.

Ad­dress­ing a gath­er­ing, Mr Sat­yarthi said, “Sex of­fence reg­istry is my de­mand in Ben­galuru. We have to iden­tify sex of­fend­ers so that the per­pe­tra­tors can be boy­cotted by the com­mu­nity and so­ci­ety.”

“Such peo­ple should never find any job any­where. If they are spot­ted at bus stands or rail­way sta­tions, peo­ple should be aware of them,” said Mr Sat­yarthi.
