A child’s age is a very sensitive phase from all the stages of life. They are the most innocent and vulnerable target for crimes. When an offence happens, it not only incapacitate them physically but mentally and emotionally as well. From the chronicle studies we can find out that such crimes have existed in the society from a long time and are increasing day by day. The main motive of the society, to show that it has matured, should be to allay the previously mentioned crimes. In India, the lion’s share in such crimes are Kidnapping & Abduction followed by Rape, Assault or Insult to modesty of girl children, Crimes under POCSO, Procuration of minor girls, Crimes falling under Juvenile Justice Act. In this backdrop, present study is based on the similar malfeasances throughout India after all the prevalent laws.
