Delhi Police withdraws 'offensive' ad on street children

New Delhi, Aug 1 , 2013 (IANS) 14:15 IST
The Delhi Police has apologised and withdrawn a newspaper advertisement on street children following a notice issued by a child rights panel.

"Considering the dignity of street children, we have withdrawn the advertisement. Our aim was not to hurt the emotions of anyone. If anyone thinks so, we apologise for that," Delhi police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat told IANS.

He added that the advertisement was withdrawn soon after the Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR) raised a question about it.

The advertisement in an English daily Tuesday read: "Help him learn to chop an onion. Before someone teaches him how to chop a head."

The commission sent a notice to Delhi Police for portraying street children in a insensitive, derogatory manner.
