Prez: Tough for kids to speak over abuse 17.10.2017 DNA: Top News
President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday highlighted woes of children living in rural areas, maintaining that it was difficult for them to seek redressal for acts of sexual abuse. He said these children face a hard time and that in an instance of abuse, at times, even their parents contribute towards keeping the acts of sexual abuse under wraps due to fear of getting outcast. President was speaking at a march, undertaken to raise awareness against the menace of child abuse and trafficking, by Nobel Peace laureate Kailash Satyarthi's foundation. After covering over 12,000 km in 35 days, Satyarthi's 'Bharat Yatra', came to an end on Monday at the Rashtrapati Bhavan here. The march started on September 11 from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu and went up as far as Kashmir. During its entire course, it covered 22 states and Union Territories. Kovind said if this movement succeeds then this would be the true nation-building. "Ek bhi bachcha agar asurakshit hai, to hum sab usme doshi hain (If even one child is unsafe, ...

Out on a novel cause, Nobel winner wins little hearts in city 12.10.2017 DNA: India
Reena (name changed), a class X student, who was struggling for justice against sexual abuse for some time, finally got a platform to express her grief on Wednesday. Her shocking narration, which came out as ultimate helplessness and rage, proved the point that nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi tried to make during his one-day visit to Jaipur -- there is an urgent need for stringent laws and faster judiciary for child abuse. Satyarthi, after listening to her agony with a heavy heart and tears in his eyes, assured her adequate justice. He also addressed the rest 15,000 students and ensured that they will always find a “friend” in him. Satyarthi was in the city as a part of his 35-day ‘Bharat Yatra’, to create awareness and seek solutions to combat the growing menace of child sexual abuse and trafficking. The session focused on lessons on basic rights that children are granted under the constitution of India, the difference between good touch-bad touch and the need to understand the principles of ‘no touch’ ...

Intercourse with wife below 18 is rape: SC 12.10.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Sexual intercourse with wife below 18 years of age is rape, the Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday, a landmark judgment that fixes the age of consent at 18 for all girls irrespective of their marital status, ending contradictions in laws framed against rape, child abuse and underage marriage. Section 375 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) says sex with a girl who is below 18 is rape, but Exception 2 carved out in it allowed a man to have sex with his wife aged between 15 and 18 even without her consent. The court struck down this exception, saying it was arbitrary, violative of the Constitution, contrary to other statutes and violated the bodily integrity of a girl child. The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO), 2012, also considers sex with children — defined as below 18 — as rape. Exception 2 was also contrary to the Prohibition of Child Marriage Act, 2006, that puts 18 as the age of marriage for girls and 21 for boys. The court made it clear it is not getting into the subject of marital ...
