New Delhi, Oct 8: The Supreme Court on Wednesday expressed concern over the incident where 34 minor girls in Bihar’s Supaul were thrashed for allegedly resisting sexual advances.
“All these newspaper reports are not good. Skeleton of girls found… 34 girls beaten up because they wanted to protect themselves from molestation. How could you treat children like this? These kinds of problems are arising day in and day out”, the apex court said.
The court also suggested the central government to constitute a national institution to ensure proper psychological rehabilitation of victims as well as accused juveniles.
For this, the Centre has sought time to implement the suggestion given by the top court.
A group of two dozen goons broke into the Kasturba Residential School, a government institution for girls in Triveniganj, Saupaul district of Bihar and beaten the school girls with sticks for resisting sexually advances.
