Rahul Gandhi gets legal notice from Maharashtra child rights body for disclosing identity of minor victims

The Maharashtra State Commission for Protection of Child Rights issued a notice to Congress President Rahul Gandhi as well as microblogging site Twitter for disclosing the identity of two minor boys who were reportedly victims of assault. As per reports, Amol Jadhav, a city resident, had filed a complaint and President of the commission, Pravin Ghuge, said he has sought a reply as to why action should not be taken against them under the Juvenile Justice Act, 2015 and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012.

On 15th June, Congress President Rahul Gandhi had tweeted a video where two minor Dalit boys were allegedly being beaten up for bathing in ‘Savarna’ well.

As per law the identities of minor victims cannot be disclosed. The video which went viral last week allegedly shows two minor boys who were stripped naked and beaten up and paraded nude in a village at Jalgaon in Maharashtra. Rahul Gandhi had tweeted the video from his official handle, blaming the BJP and RSS for rising atrocities against Dalits.
