The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO)

The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO Act) 2012 was formulated in order to effectively address sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children. Here are some points that it covers as mentioned in a previous article:

1. The act covers a child as any person under the age of 18. It defines different forms of sexual abuse, including penetrative and non-penetrative assault, as well as sexual harassment and pornography.

2. It covers various forms of sexual abuse such as penetrative and non-penetrative assault, as well as sexual harassment and pornography.

3. It deems a sexual assault to be “aggravated” under certain circumstances, such as when the abused child is mentally ill or when the crime is committed by a family member, police officer, teacher, or doctor.

4. The Act also defines the role of the police as child protectors, which means that the officials investigating a sexual abuse case of the child are responsible for making urgent arrangements for the care and protection of the child.

5. The Act provides that the special courts must conduct the trial in-camera and without revealing the identity of the child, in a manner that is as child-friendly as possible.

6. Above all, the Act stipulates that a case of child sexual abuse must be disposed of within one year from the date the offence is reported.
