Decide school safety guidelines in 3 months, SC to Centre 17.4.2018 General News
The Supreme Court today asked the Centre to decide in three months on demands for framing of safety guidelines for all schools, as sought by the father of a seven-year-old boy who was killed in a Gurgaon school, and some lawyers. The top court said the decision taken by the government should cover both public and private schools. A bench of Justices Adarsh Kumar Goel and R F Nariman said the court was not an expert on framing of policy or guidelines for schools and it would be appropriate if the government looks into the cause raised in various writ petitions. "We direct Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) to look into the prayers in the PILs and consider taking a decision in three months. The decision taken shall be for both government as well as private schools," the bench said. Earlier, the apex court had sought compilation of norms formulated by the Centre and states for its consideration. It had asked all the states and union territories to file their responses on the ..

K'tka govt not doing enough to curb sexual child abuse: BJP MP 17.4.2018 General News
BJP MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar today accused the Siddaramaiah-led Congress government in Karnataka of not doing enough to curb sexual child abuse in the state, saying the number such cases increased by 10 times in the past five years. Citing statistics from the Karnataka State Integrated Child Protection Society, he said the number of cases registered under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) Act in 2012-13 was 138, whereas the number this year was 1,420. He said more than 93 per cent of the cases were still pending trial. "Low conviction rates are particularly dangerous because offenders are free to offend again," he said in a statement. He said the statistics show that the Siddaramaiah government despite overwhelming evidence of rise in crimes against children has done very little to curb the menace.
