Sexual atrocities against Children are enormously increasing day by day. In most cases children below 13 years fall to be the victim. The trauma caused to the hapless children after they suffer such heinous crime is beyond any words. The civil right of children to attain full mental, social and physical development is obviously smashed in these situations.

In a country where children are considered the future of a nation and rights of children in terms of education and health are ensured through various Government security schemes, how far have the measures for protection against sexual violence reached in our country?

Surprisingly the offenders are often detained in prison for a period much less than 3 years, but the victims are captivated for a life time under dishonor, self- guilt, inferiority, personality disorders and sexual ill-health.  Severe punishment can surely reduce the rates of any crime.

This is a plea to our government to re-frame our existing law to ensure that minimum LIFE IMPRISONMENT should be   awarded to every culprit engaged in any form of sexual violence (including child molestation, pornography and sexual abuse) against children below the age of 16 years.
