NCPCR member says Assam motivated against children crimes

Guwahati: The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) on Wednesday said that Assam is actively working to end crimes against children.

Addressing a press conference here, NCPCR member Divya Gupta said juvenile crimes in Assam are also “very low” compared to some other states.
“The Assam government is very active in preventing crimes against children. It is taking serious action against the perpetrators of child abuse,” she said.

Without sharing statistics, Gupta claimed that crimes against children were on the decline in the state.

Talking about juveniles involved in crime, he said Assam is a “good state” where very few juvenile offenders are kept in reform homes. There are “very few”.
“I visited one such home, which houses youth from 13 districts. The total number of children living there is only 50,” said Gupta.

Referring to the two children who were allegedly physically and sexually abused by a doctor couple, the NCPCR member said she had met them and they were recovering.
“They are in a safe place and utmost care is being taken for their recovery. I cannot tell what kind of physical and sexual torture these two children were subjected to. They have bruises and burn marks on their private parts. “Even animals don’t behave like this,” she said.

Last month, the Dr. couple was arrested in Guwahati for allegedly assaulting two children they claimed to have adopted.

In all, three children – a boy and a girl aged around three and another boy around 11 – were rescued from their residence. The girl and the little boy were allegedly assaulted.
