Child sex abuse: Human Rights Watch slams Indian govt
In a report released Thursday, New York-based Human Rights Watch says child sexual abuse is disturbingly common in homes, schools, and residential care facilities in India.
The 81-page report says government responses are falling short in protecting children from sexual abuse and in the treatment of victims of abuse. It urges the government to ensure rigorous implementation of child protection laws and strict monitoring of child care facilities. It calls for an end to traumatic medical examinations and insensitive treatment by police and other authorities, which subject victims to further distress.
