The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has reportedly recommended modifications to the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012, to protect children. The proposed changes were aimed at bolstering the fight against child sexual abuse by addressing legal and administrative loopholes, the Hindustan Times reported. It reportedly also asked states and union territories to block the production, distribution, and consumption of Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM) on the internet and submit action-taken reports within two months.
