Centre launches sex offenders’ registry
Taking lessons from many progressive societies which strive to ensure the safety of their women utilising their legal framework effectively and brilliantly, the Indian government have launched the laudable program of National Sex Offenders’ Registry, which contains the name, address and, even, fingerprint of all convicted sex offenders who have been found guilty in the sex crimes ranges from rape to eve teasing.
The registry, which is exclusively available only for the law enforcement agencies for the purposes of investigation and monitoring, includes the details of all those who has been convicted in such crimes since the year 2005.
The authorities assure that the registry would not breach the right to privacy of any sex offender as the registry would not be available in the public platforms.
The registry gives a clear message that the country considers the condemnable crimes of sex offence seriously and is very dedicated to contain the threat this offence posed in our society.
So far, as many as 4.4 lakh people have been admitted in this long list of sex offenders. While releasing the list, Union Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi has expressed her dissatisfaction in the sensational sex offences such as the shelter home case reported in the recent past.
