I totally agree with what you have stated.
Butt what needs t be done by hem is to equip their monitors, the AEEOs and DEEOs and DEOs as well as the CEOs etc on how to handle the prosecutions in the field. After POCSO they have a duty to ensure that the standards in the investigation are carried out perfectly and that the children are not harassed etc. May be we all should now stand with them in empowering them in this next phase. Let us resolve to do it all.
