The Department of Women and Child Development launched a new website to track Delhi’s missing children.
The Zonal Integrated Police Network (ZIPNET) would be closed soon as the new website will take over the responsibility to track missing children.
A national website to track children (www.trackthemissingchild.gov.in) has been launched and will work in a full-fledged manner, so that there is integrated detail to track missing children,” said Premoday Khakha, assistant director, Integrated Child Protection Scheme (ICPS).
“As soon as the child goes missing, all relevant child protection stakeholders should be alerted for fast-tracking the case,” Nina Nayak, member, NCPCR, said, underlining the need for convergence between different authorities in the state.
As per figures corroborated by CRY and Alliance for People’s Rights, between January 2012 and Dec 31, 2012, around 4,364 children went missing in Delhi.
