Assam, first Indian state to observe Child Protection Day

Assam became the first state in the country to observe Child Protection Day with about 1400 children participating in the central function in Guwahati.
 The day was observed across the state and a central function was organised here under the aegis of Assam State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (ASCPCR) in collaboration with the UNICEF.  The highlight of the function was the colourful dances and skits performed by schoolchildren to highlight issues like quality education, importance of protection of children, child trafficking and child marriage.
The function was attended among others by Justice Indira Shah of the Gauhati High Court, Assam minister for Social Welfare and Jails Akon Bora and chief of UNICEF Assam Dr Tushar Manohar Rane.
