India: Child labour: Sealing order
NEW DELHI: Delhi high court on Monday instructed the state government to immediately seal premises where child workers are found to be employed and ensure the errant owners cough up Rs 20,000 as fine per child.
A division bench comprising acting Chief Justice A K Sikri and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw directed the government to file a status report by July 30 detailing progress made in rescue operation of child workers and their rehabilitation plans. HC allowed the plea of advocate H S Phulka representing the NGO Bachpan Bachao Andolan that premises having minors be sealed.
