Bengaluru: The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday February 22 has ordered the State Government to submit a status report of the investigation done to trace 141 children on 420 crimes registered about missing children from government Child Care Institutions from 2015 to 2021, in response to a public interest litigation filed on their whereabouts.

After serving notice on the Additional Chief secretaries of the departments of Home and Women and Child Development, the Director of the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS), and the Director General and Inspector General of Police, a division bench of Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi and Justice Suraj Govindaraj issued the order.

The government failed to trace the missing children from government-owned Child Care Institutions (CCI), said Advocate S. Umapathi, who represents the petitioner K. C. Rajanna from Kolar.  He claimed that the petitioner got information under the Right to Information Act showing that the police department failed to track down around 141 children out of 420 crimes reported between October 2015 and October 2021.

The petitioner asked the court to order the State to submit the status report of 141 untraced children and to create special “Child Police Stations.”
