Chandigarh, May 26, 2022: As a part of the ongoing Self Defence Training Camp at Home Science College, Chandigarh students were sensitized on the POCSO Act and its benefits and applications. The Act is a comprehensive law enacted with the objective of protecting children from a slew of sexual offences like sexual assault, sexual harassment and pornography while safeguarding the interests of the child at every stage of the judicial process by introducing a child-friendly mechanism for reporting and recording.
SHO Usha Rani was the resource person from Women/Child Support Unit, Sector-17, Chandigarh along with Head Constable Sanjay, Lady Constable Pinky and Lady Constable Ranjana. It was a very insightful session attended by 100 NSS & NCC Cadets.
Principal of the college, Prof Sudha Katyal urged the students to be aware of the various laws governing sexual harassment in children to ensure their safety.
