Bhopal - Making special efforts to trace missing children:
BHOPAL : Director General of Police Surendra Sing, speaking at a workshop on ‘Legal Rights of Children and Child Trafficking’ at PTRI here on Thursday, emphasised on showing special sensitivity towards children. He said police have launched a campaign to trace out missing children. He said policemen should show sensitivity towards children.
Sing said some children, stressed due to examination and results, leave their homes. There is a need to make parents and teachers understand the emotional state of children and make them aware of the ways to free them from stress.
Additional Director General of Police (Crime against women) Aruna Mohan Rao said children are the most vulnerable and sensitive citizens of the country. FIRs are being filed in cases of missing children. The number of girls recovered is lesser and that was a matter of concern. She said in cases of missing children, action under IPC, along with Juvenile Justice Act and POSCO Act should also be taken.
