Prime Minister Imran Khan has instructed the creation of an app called ‘Mera Bacha Alert’ to deal with unfortunate events related to children. The order was given earlier this week, in light of the recent Chuniyan incident where four children were mercilessly abused, and their dead bodies were dumped in a nearby field. This application will be linked with the Pakistan Citizen Portal, through which information will be rolled out to the relevant authorities, including Police and the various Law-enforcement agencies.
PM Imran Khan briefed the cabinet on the progress made in the investigation of cases regarding the unethical and unfortunate incidents faced by the children and discussed the possibility of achieving further success in curbing child abuse and child abduction cases through the new application. He said that the parents sometimes feel hesitant and scared in reporting such incidents due to societal pressure and that the present government would take all necessary steps to ensure the safety of innocent children and give heavy penalties to those who performed such heinous crimes. The app will be built within two weeks and made available on mobile phones.
