Child sexual abuse is widespread around the world, not only in India. These crimes against children are particularly common in developing or underdeveloped nations such as Pakistan, the Philippines, India, Kyrgyzstan, and many more. Sexual abuse does not have to entail any kind of penetration, force, pain, or contact. Sexual assault is defined as any act committed at a minor with the purpose of obtaining sexual enjoyment. The abuser might be of any age, gender, or socioeconomic background. This includes online behaviour directed towards minors. This research paper attempted to highlight key fundamental elements of the law protecting minors from sexual assault that require substantial revision.
