Death for aggravated child abuse, Lok Sabha passes new POCSO bill

Aug 01, 2019 21:42 IST

An amended POSCO bill seeking to provide the death penalty for aggravated sexual assault on children was passed by the Lok Sabha on Thursday. The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Amendment) Bill, 2019, piloted by Women and Child Development Minister Smriti Irani, also aims at making offences against children gender-neutral. The Bill was already approved by the Rajya Sabha, it defines child pornography, making sexual predators indulging in such crimes punishable.
