Delhi HC Wants AAP Govt’s Response On Compensation For Male Victims Of Child Sexual Abuse

Updated on 2 September, 2017 at 5:23 pm By

In a move to raise awareness and sensitivity about male victims of child sexual abuse, the Delhi High Court on Thursday sought response of AAP government to enhance compensation amount given to child victims of sexual assault.

As reported by IBN Live, the Delhi High Court has  issued notice to the Delhi government on a plea challenging the provisions of the Delhi Victims Compensation Scheme of 2011, for discriminating between male and female victims of rape.

The plea was filed through an NGO by a 13-year-old who was sodomised by three senior students behind his school in 2013.



The plea alleged that the child underwent severe mental and physical trauma, and changed his school after the incident. Also, his family went through financial hardships because of the incident. The perpetrators were convicted of unnatural sexual offences.

The plea further said that Rs.50,000 compensation under the head of child abuse was “arbitrary, grossly inadequate and discriminatory” as a minor girl would be entitled to compensation of Rs.3 lakh under the head of rape for a similar crime.

A compensation of Rs.10 lakh has been sought for the boy as he was a victim of a brutal sexual assault.
