Panaji:  State Police on Thursday evening booked Goa Church’s wing and another NGO for using children at anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) rally in Margao on January 24.

Women and Child Protection unit of State police has been filed against office bearers of Council for Social Justice and Peace (Goa Church’s wing) and National Human Rights Organisation (Goa Chapter) under section 8 (1) Goa Children’s Act and section 83 (2) Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015 for using children in public meeting to protest against CAA and NRC at Margao on January 24, a senior police official said.

Police Inspector Sudiksha Naik is investigating the case.

The case was filed after state-based NGO Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) on Wednesday filed a formal complaint with Director General of Police against presence of children at the rally in Margao.

SCAN Director Emidio Pinho, in a complaint, had said that “having impressionable children at such gatherings, places them in a vulnerable situation.”

“Children are exposed to political ideology, aggressive and often derogatory language and this can leave a lasting memory,” he had said.

The SCAN said that participation in such rallies “can be detrimental to their sensitive minds.”

“Also, at such meetings, the participants can become violent and innocent children become victims,” he had said.
