Child trafficking has turned out to be a big headache for the Delhi police. In many cases they have been unable to trace them. Some 682 children continue to be missing from New Delhi, India’s capital city. Looking at the seriousness of the case the Delhi High Court has intervened by asking the police commissioner to take up the child missing incident seriously. The HC has urged the Delhi police to create a special task force so that gangs involved in such cases could be busted.
The bench wants senior police offices of the level of DCP to monitor all cases of missing children in the city. Also, the police have given six months to crack children missing cases. The bench said in cases of failure the cases would be shifted to the anti-kidnapping wing.
The court also ordered that after the missing children are rescued they should be produced before the member secretary of DLSA or before its lawyers.
