Missing kids: SC directs states to file compliance reports
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday directed all states and Union Territories to file their compliance reports of its verdict for registration of FIR and conduct of probe in every case of missing child.
A bench headed by Justice H L Dattu asked the states to file the report and supply a copy of them to NGO Bachpan Bachao Andolan on whose petition it had passed a slew of directions on January 17 last year.
The apex court had directed that a special officer be appointed in every police station across the country to deal with juveniles in view of growing number of minors getting involved in various offences.
The court had passed the order on a PIL filed by the NGO alleging that for over 1.7 lakh children have gone missing in the country between January 2008-2010, many of whom were kidnapped for trafficking in flesh trade and child labour.
