Panaji: Child sex is being offered for Rs.50 on Goa`s beaches, Pramod Salgaocar, producer of film `Baga Beach`, claimed Tuesday.
Salgaocar, whose film is based on the ills of Goa`s tourism industry, said she once got a complaint from a Hungarian tourist, who was reportedly offered child sex for Rs.50.
"Today you don`t even get chicken for Rs.50," Salgaocar told a press conference here, quoting the complainant.
Goa gave India`s first conviction in a paedophilia case involving Freddy Peats, a German who was sentenced to life for abusing scores of children in the 1980s.
Child abuse in Goa is one of the elements explored in Laxmikant Shetgaonkar directed `Baga beach`, along with other aspects which make up tor the underbelly of tourism in this state.
"Every day four children are abused in Goa. These are government statistics," Shetgaonkar said.
