Over 60,000 Children Abandoned Each Year in India
The committee which submitted its report last week noted that in India more than 60,000 children are being abandoned every year and most of these cases go unnoticed. According to IBN Live, the Verma committee cited examples of such incidents in the report. The abandoned children have fallen victims to human trafficking and sexual violence. Many NGO’s and the social activists pointed fingers to police inaction in such cases.
