Mithun Das

Children are considered as future of a nation, but unfortunately children of our country are under a big threat as crime against children are increasing alarmingly throughout the nation in past decade. As per the reports of NCRB, the number of crimes against children has been increased about 650% during the period of 2006 to 2018. The highest number of crimes has been committed under the head kidnapping and abduction followed by child rape and sexual assault of children. The present paper is aimed to highlight the trend of number and rate of crime of all over India for the period of 2014 to 2018, the number and rate of crime in the nature of kidnapping and abduction, child rape and sexual assault of children in the states and UTs where the number of total crime exceeds 5000 as per the latest report of NCRB and to observe if there is any significant change during the study period. The study reveals that a large part of our country is not absolutely safe for our children because either the number of crimes is increasing alarmingly or rate of crime is higher than the national crime rate. The study concludes that if collective efforts are taken by parents, guardians, schools, police, administration and judiciary system, the evil of crime against children will surely be eradicated from our country.
