Telangana Home Min must act, says Child Rights panel
WARANGAL: Following the rape and murder of a nine-month-old infant at Hanmakonda, the state Child Rights Commission has criticised the state home minister Md Mahmood Ali for not taking stringent action against crime in the state.
The Commission’s state president Achutha Rao noted that the home minister has failed to visit the areas where atrocious incidents have taken place and has failed to respond to the trafficking of girl children at Yadagirigutta and the serial killings at Hajipur.
Mr Rao said such incidents are taking place in the state at an average of one incident per day, right from infants to 18-year-old minors.
They are being subjected to rape and murder but the state government is not taking effective steps to prevent such incidents.
