Sexual offences against children a pandemic, says Satyarthi
NOBEL Laureate Kailash Satyarthi on Thursday said sexual offences against children have emerged as a pandemic and surprisingly in 70 per cent cases family members are involved.
In a lecture on ‘Surakshit Bachpan, Surakshit Bharat’ ((Safe Childhood-Safe India) here, he said “rushing” the dreams of children is the biggest crime and everybody should work sensibly towards issues of children.
Appreciating the efforts of Rajasthan Police, Satyarthi said many of his family members were police and can understand the functioning of the police very closely. On the occasion, he administered oath to those who attended his lecture and resolved for “safe Jaipur, safe Rajasthan and safer India” for the purpose of protecting children from sexual abuse and trafficking.
