Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan directed to launch in a two-weeks time a new application “Mera Bacha Alert” (my child alert) to effectively tackle the unfortunate cases of child abduction and missing in the country.
In case of registration of the missing of any child, the details would soon reach the provincial inspectors general of police and other senior officers.
The application “Mera Bacha Alert” would be connected with Pakistan Citizen Portal so that the progress on any case, including the recovery of the child, could be monitored, a press release issued by the PM Office Media Wing said.
Imran apprised the cabinet meeting of the success achieved in the investigation of the cases regarding the immoral incidents faced by the children, which, he said, would help reach other culprits of such heinous acts.
He said since the parents did not often reveal the incidents due to social reasons, the present government would take all possible measures to ensure the protection of innocent children and penalise those involved in such heinous and immoral crimes.
