BENGALURU: DGP&IGP Rupak Kumar Dutta urged the police fraternity to be  sincere while handling cases involving crime against women and children.  He said, “The convictions in crimes against women, especially sexual assault cases, have reduced due to delay in delivery of justice.” Also there is no fear among the criminals, he said.

He was speaking at the day-long Stakeholder Consultation on Safety and Security of Women and Children, organised by the Indian Police Foundation and Karnataka Police at the DG’s office on Tuesday.

On child trafficking, he said, “There are hardly any cases where the police have been able to unearth the entire network of traffickers. Unfortunately, it is the victims who are further victimised and not the exploiters who are booked under the Prevention of Human Trafficking Act.”  He said there is a need for attitudinal change among police while dealing with the victims.

Indian Police Foundation Chairman Prakash Singh said access to internet porn is one of the major causes that has polluted many minds. “Access to porn even to high schoolchildren, whose minds would still be immature, is having adverse effects on them psychologically.”
