Be Human Stop Child Abuse : Vol 13, 24th April, 2013


Problems faced by consultants in the city of Delhi

There was a time when smaller nursing homes were flooded with top consultants of the city but now most of them either are not opting for or have left the smaller medical establishments.

Most of them are opting for bigger private establishments to survive as the smaller nursing homes are unable to provide them with the latest infrastructure facilities.

Consultants prefer to do their procedures in bigger hospitals.

Most of the nursing homes, which are running are single consultant nursing home owned and run by the specialty of the owner.

In a bigger setup, there is a great disparity in salary structure.

Most of the corporate hospitals cater to only 1% of the population, which can afford treatment at these hospitals.

Shocking: 336% rise in child rape cases in India since 2001

Satya Prakash, Hindustan Times New Delhi, April 20, 2013

Child rape cases in India have witnessed 336% rise since 2001.

Citing National Crimes Record Bureau (NCRB) figures, the report by Asian Centre for Human Rights (ACHR) stated that 48,338 child rape cases were recorded during 2001-11, which was an increase of 336% in such cases since 2001 when only 2,113 child rape cases were recorded. The number rose to 7,112 cases in 2011.

With 9,465 cases, Madhya Pradesh was on the top of the child rape table, followed by Maharashtra (6,868) and Uttar Pradesh (5,949), while Daman and Diu (9), Dadra and Nagar Haveli (15) and Nagaland (38) reported the least number of child rape cases during 2001-11.

These are only the tip of the iceberg as the large majority of child rape cases are not reported to the police while children regularly become victims of other forms of sexual assault too.
The report – “India’s Hell Holes:

Child Sexual Assault in Juvenile Justice Homes” stated that sexual offences against children in India had reached epidemic proportions and a large number of such crimes were being committed in 733 juvenile justice homes run and aided by government. It cited 39 such cases – 11 from government-run juvenile justice homes and 27 from privately/NGO-run ones.

There were hundreds of unregistered child care homes across the country despite the requirement to register such homes within six months under Juvenile Justice (Care & Protection of Children) Act, 2006, it said, demanding registration of cases against those running unregistered juvenile justice homes.

According to the report, though there were 462 District Child Welfare Committees in 23 States mandated to verify fit institutions, majority of them existed
only on paper.

It said lack of segregation on the basis of gender, nature of offences and age facilitated senior inmates to commit offences against minor inmates, including girls.

ACHR recommended immediate establishment of Inspection Committees in all the districts and mandatory inspection of the juvenile justice homes by these committees in every three months; stopping funds to any home unless inspection reports are submitted; separate budgetary allocations for the functioning of the Inspection Committees and ban on posting of male staff in girls’ homes.
