HC slams govt on awareness about laws for women, kids
The Delhi High Court has expressed displeasure at the “apathy and insensitivity” of the central and city governments on creating public awareness about laws and punishment for offences against women and children.

A division bench of Justice Kailash Gambhir and Justice Sunita Gupta said it was totally “aghast and saddened” to find the steep increase in the cases of crimes against women. 

Hearing a plea, where it had asked the two governments to create awareness of sexual offences and the law in the Capital, the bench slammed the central and Delhi governments for not taking adequate steps to educate people on the issue through the visual medium.

“While adjourning this matter, we express our disgust and displeasure at the apathy and insensitivity of the central and Delhi governments for having failed to take steps to produce even a single documentary....” 

“...or for that matter take the help of any other visual media to educate people of Delhi about the nature of sexual offences concerning women and child and create awareness about existing laws and stringent punishments provided against such offences despite several directions by this court,” it said.
