Do you know the country where 224 kids go missing everyday
Since 2011, 327658 kids went missing in India. That is 224 kids per day !
New Delhi: The Supreme Court, while expressing serious concern for missing children, has asked the National Police Academy, Hyderabad, to consult police authorities across the country and to come out with a study curriculum and a training module for sensitising police on child rights and to trace missing children, prevent human trafficking and child labour and other vices that go with exploitation of children.
A bench comprising Justices Madan B. Lokur and UdayLalit asked the Centre and the States to have coordinated efforts to trace missing children. The bench gave this direction during the hearing of a writ petition filed by BachpanBachaoAndolan.
