While the child abuse in the most populous province of Pakistan is on the rise, the officialdom seems to be sitting idle and hoping for a miracle.
A recent report analysing police records since 2017 shows that on average three cases of rape or abuse of children under 10 years of age have been reported on a daily basis in Punjab province with murder of one child every month.
During this period, a total of 2,841 child sexual abuse cases were registered with Punjab Police across 36 districts of the province and nine regions under its administrative control.
