The National Commission For Protection of Child Rights has issued a notice to MP Congress leader Sajjan Singh Verma over his controversial remark on girls' marriage age. The tCongress leader on Wednesday had asked that when a girl can reproduce at the age of 15, what's the need to increase the marriage age from 18 to 21.
