Child rights meet focuses on rehab of abused kids

MUMBAI: Trauma care, skill development and child friendly courtrooms were some of the recommendations and suggestions which experts feel will help in tackling the cause of child labour and trafficking in the country. A state level day long convention was organised in the city on Saturday by the Maharashtra State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (MSCPCR) and the International Justice Mission, a global non government organisation working with victims of violence, sexual exploitation, slavery etc.

Commission secretary, A N Tripathi feels while there are plenty of laws in place to fight child labour and trafficking, there is a need for better implementation. "Almost 35% of girls under the age of 16 years are forced in sex trade and this is done on the pretext of bogus or forced marriages. There are various laws which can help curb this but there is a need for a will power to act against it," said Tripathi.
