Constitute 'child protection cell' for child disaster victims: SC


Supreme Court Of India

The Supreme Court directed the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) to constitute a ‘child protection cell’ for the child disaster victims on September 5.

While hearing a plea filed by the NGO, Bachpan Bachao Aandolan, the apex court ruled the above.

The court also stressed upon the need of utilization of maximum face recognition software, especially while dealing in the children missing cases. In the meantime, the court also ordered the police to register FIRs in the children missing and mysterious and not to be found cases.

Government was asked to make sure that the vacancies in the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) and other relevant departments, assigned for child rights and their rescue, relief and rehabilitation, shall be filled.
