Difficult to act on charges without written complaints SCPCR Member

| | Dehradun | in Dehradun

Expressing concern over the recent case of a missionary organisation-run shelter home in Ranchi, Jharkhand allegedly selling infants to childless couples, Uttrakhand State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (SCPCR) member Shardra Tripathi said that complaints of a similar nature have also been received by the commission in Uttarakhand. However, since such complaints are mostly verbal, it is difficult for the commission to act on them if the complaints are not submitted in writing.

Talking to The Pioneer on Thursday, member of SCPCR Sharda Tirpathi said, “We receive complaints on such issues verbally, but it is really hard for us to take action in any such case if there is no written complaint.

 If we talk about our State, no such written complained has been registered with us so far. The Ranchi case is a very sensitive one and it is doubtless a major issue. The things now allegedly happening in this State and also in other States are all the more serious if we view them against the crimes perpetrated on the  children.”

Asked about the status of Uttrakhand vis-a-vis the issue and the manner in which SCPCR handles them, Tripathi said, “I register the cases myself.  The commission is committed to resolving such problems the children are facing.

If we find any such case or any criminal activity which involves trafficking or such crimes all the members of the commission swing into action promptly to fight the evil till it is rightly dealt with.”
