'Avoid delay in delivering justice to child victims'

Judge Acharya released a booklet on child rights on the occasion.

Dakshina Kannada principal district and sessions judge Kadluru Satyanarayana Acharya urged the people to shun delay tactics in acting towards the abuse of children.

Speaking after inaugurating a two-day orientation programme on Child rights organised by Child Rights Trust, at CODP in Mangaluru on Wednesday, the judge noted that many times, the family members of the victimised children, do not file complaints immediately, which poses constraints for appropriate legal action.

“There is a hesitation among the members of society in speaking up openly about the victimisation if children. He lamented that is happening due to the degradation of moral values in the society. There is also a need to address the issue of torment undergone by the child victims.”

The judge opined it was necessary to discuss both the negative and positive aspects regarding the implementation of laws related to child rights.

The Principal District and Sessions Judge meanwhile released a booklet on child rights.

Child Rights Trust Executive Director N V Vasudeva Acharya said that the trust is a crowdfunding organisation and focuses on the implementation of child rights.
