Recently the police have sprung into action, vis--vis child marriages and child rights. There have been raids conducted by the police to stop child marriages in rural areas of the country. Recently one such raid has been conducted in Dadu, where ten year old girl was being married to a twelve year old boy. It is a promising development, which points to the fact that the department of police has become sensitized to the severity and implications of these issues. It is important that the police be further mobilized to protect the rights of children, as they are the future of our country. HASSAN BASHIR, Islamabad, May 12.
