Child sexual abuse: Disturbing situation in Assam
PARENTS MIGHT BE shocked to hear this. If a survey conducted by the Union Ministry of Women and Child Development is to be believed, then Assam tops the list of the highest number of sexual assaults described as ‘severe’ among the other states of India. The Ministry recently carried out a survey between the age of 5 and 18 in the states across the country. The survey showed that nearly 50 per cent of children of 13 states are sexually abused in school. And 53 per cent say they have suffered some form of sexual abuse at school or elsewhere.
