Address the Rising Cases of Sexual and Physical Violence Against Children
Today marks the 9th day of the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence. We applaud the media houses for their increased reporting about children being abused. In the last few days, we saw the story of a girl aged 15 who was repeatedly raped by an elderly man while a close relative was an accomplice to this rape by facilitating this heinous crime. We have again taken note of other young girls that are reportedly sexually and physically abused by older men on various media channels. These stories highlight the criminal practices that are all too prevalent in our country.
