New Delhi, Oct 11 (IANS) Delhi Lt. Governor Anil Baijal on Thursday directed the Delhi Police to analyse the statistics of untraced children and investigate the cases in which children are still missing.
Baijal was chairing a law and order meeting on "Anti-Human Trafficking Unit and Missing Children".
"Delhi Police should visit families of children included in 'Pehchan Scheme' and 'Operation Milap' to instill a sense of security among the parents," an official statement from the LG Office said.
Baijal also directed the Delhi Police that Crime Branch and local police should develop intelligence and take action against organised gangs that force children/ grownups into begging and take exemplary and deterrent action against them, it said.
He told the Delhi Police that the statistics of untraced children should be analysed and the cases in which children are still untraced should be thoroughly investigated, the statement said.
The trend of recovery of children, including the places from where they are recovered, should also be analysed, it said.
Baijal was informed about the steps taken regarding missing children such as Helpline No. 1094 and 23241210 working 24X7; investigation of important cases transferred to the Crime Branch; a missing persons' desk in all the police stations; and online data uploaded/ update, among others, according to the statement.
Baijal also advised the Social Welfare Department to take proactive steps to discourage begging.
"The number of Beggar Homes should be enhanced and the facilities in such homes should be improved to make them lively. The Social Welfare Department should also set up skill development centres in such homes along with de-addiction clinics," it said.
The meeting was attended by Delhi Chief Secretary, Additional Chief Secretary (Home), Commissioner of Police and Secretary (Social Welfare), among others.
