Kerala: Inquiry begins against private charity for missing children even as unresolved complaints of child rights violation soar

After over 50 children go missing in a private charity, Janaseva Sishu Bhavan, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has begun an inquiry and put the secretary of the trust Jose Maveli on notice and asked him to produce the missing children. The District Collector took over the institution citing violation of the Juvenile Justice Act. Following a series of complaints on violations, including illegal detention of children from other states, lack of proper documentation and missing children, the state government took over the trust for three months. A team of officials from Tamil Nadu found trafficked kids from the orphanages run by Maveli.

As per reports, 2,266 complaints of child rights violations are unresolved in Kerala in last five years. There have been an increase in molestation cases against children in the state. Recently, a businessman, Moinudeen Kutty, was arrested for allegedly molesting a minor girl inside a cinema hall in Malappuram district in Kerala. The child’s mother has also been arrested and charged under the POCSO act for allowing the 10-year-old’s molestation by Moideen Kutty.

As per an RTI filed by Advocate DB Binu, who had earlier exposed exorbitant expenses of Communist leaders in Kerala, has revealed that 2,266 complaints related to child rights violation filed between March 2013 and March 2018 are unresolved, which have been increasing every year. Thiruvananthapuram, which is represented by Congress leader Shashi Tharoor in the Lok Sabha, tops the list when it comes to children feeling threatened and denied protection in school and public places.
