New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday directed the Central government to issue a notification prohibiting the employment of children in Indian circuses.
"In order to protect the fundamental rights of these children under Article 21 of the constitution, we direct the centre to issue suitable notification prohibiting their employment in circuses," the apex court bench of Justice Dalbir Bhandari and Justice Deepak Verma said.
The court said the children being rescued should be kept in separate rooms or may be handed over to their parents if they were willing after due verification.
