A children's corner in every police station whether accused or complainant.
Ashish Bhatia, DGP, CID, crime and railways sent a letter to all the police commissioners and range IGPs, asking them to allot a separate physical space for 'Bal Corner'.
As the name suggests, Bal Corner will be a 'child-friendly' space inside a police station for the minor complainants and those accused.
The idea behind was to provide a more friendly and secure environment to the minors. The Bal Corners are designed keeping children in mind. They will not only be clean but will also have clean drinking water, food, clothes and material for the entertainment of children.
The letter sent by the DGP stresses on the issue that the juvenile is treated as per their age. The police stations are directed to appoint a police officer as a child welfare officer and should maintain a separate register for lodging complaints of the minor victims said another police official.
