Child Beggary: on a petition for the rehabilitation of affected children; the Delhi High Court has issued a notice to the DCPCR and others.

The Delhi High Court issued notice today on a plea asking for the necessary steps to be taken to end child beggary and; related issues in and around the national capital.

Advocate Ajay Gautam filed the suit; which seeks strict execution of the requirements of the Commission for Protection of Child Rights Act, 2005.

He claims, “The begging mafia is actively involved in the threat of children begging, and; they abduct, train, coerce, and torture Childs for the purpose of begging. However, the department in charge of combating this threat has failed to take any corrective action. ” The Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights, the Union of India, the Delhi Police, the Department of Social Welfare (NCT of Delhi), and the Department of Education have all received notices as a result (NCT of Delhi).

Gautam has asked the concerned Respondents to identify and rehabilitate poor Childs who are forced to beg in his petition. He further requests that all Police Station Station House Officers (SHOs) be directed to take adequate steps to eliminate child begging in the areas under their control; as well as the appointment of a beat officer I division officer in this respect.

“No Child begs for his or her needs. They are coerced into it by organized criminals… Daily goals are set for these kids. They are abused, and violence is perpetrated against them “He claimed in front of the Court. He argued that such activities are not only in violation of the Bandhua Mukti Morcha’s anti-bonded labour judgment, but also of constitutional provisions such as Article 14 (right to equality), 21 (right to life and dignity), 39(f) (children to be provided with facilities to develop in a healthy manner and in conditions of freedom and dignity), and 41 (Right to education and public instruction) (Provision for just and humane conditions of work).
