Crime Patrol : Baby Falak case - a failure of child protection machinery (Episode 89, 90 on 1, 2 March 2012)

The Inside Story

Baby Falak Battling for Life at AIIMS in New Delhi

Doctors at the AIIMS Trauma Centre in New Delhi, attending on her since the past 45 days, said Falak will be discharged soon if she continues to show improvement in her medical condition. She was brought to the hospital with severe head injuries, broken arms, bite marks all over her body and cheeks branded with hot iron. Doctors have conducted five life saving surgeries on her.

Moved by Baby Falak's plight, Indians as well people from the US and Canada have approached doctors, expressing their desire to adopt her. Apex child rights panel chief Shanta Sinha said the case is a stark example of failure of child protection machinery in the country. According to a study done by the SOS children's village, 5 percent of children under the age of 18 experienced death of one or both parents, while 0.3 percent children have experienced death of both parents.

Nine people, including key accused Rajkumar who had handed over the baby to the juvenile, have been arrested in the case. Family has been the locus of major social change, and quality of parenting and livelihood that the child is given have a major role in shaping the child.
