DEHRADUN: The Uttarakhand State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (SCPCR), on Monday, directed the chief secretary to make Aadhar cards for all the mentally challenged, deaf and dumb and handicapped children of the state on a priority basis. SCPR officials said that the move was necessary in order to safeguard children from human trafficking.
“There are rising cases of unclaimed orphan mentally/physically challenged children being seen on the streets. They are one of the most susceptible group of people in our society who can be exploited for forced organ donation or into human/body trafficking.
