APR seeks solidarity for missing childrens

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Alliance for People's Rights (APR).

APR is a network of democratic, secular and progressive forces in Delhi fighting for the causes of underprivileged and other exploited sections of society.

As we all know that a large number of children go missing every year in our capital and adjoining areas. The horrible incident of Nithari is still haunting our memories in which many innocent girls were raped and murdered. But that incident too has failed to sensitize the administration and police to act fast and ensure that such incidents should not be repeated in future.

APR has conducted a survey on the problem of Missing Children in Delhi which shows that the number of missing children in Delhi is really high. There are also reports published in newspapers from time to time that a large number of these children are being kidnapped for prostitution, child labour and organ trade. APR has been approached by parents of missing children to voice their concern. It is shameful that even such cases of missing children are not getting adequate support from the police and state administration. There are many such parents struggling even to get their cases registered.

To highlight this problem and seeking government's action, parents of missing children will submit a memorandum to President of India, Chief Justice of India and the Chairman of National Human Rights Commission. Deeply concerned on such gross violation of child rights, APR seeks support of all concerned.

We need your solidarity and support for this cause.

Venue: - Jantar Mantar, New Delhi
Date: - 30.07.08
Timing: 2 to 4 pm
