Bangalore Entrepreneur Develops Website to Track Missing Kids
BANGALORE: In India, calculating the figures of missing children is quite a task. Apart from children running away from home, number of children missing, lost and being abducted is sensational; estimating the figures to be around or over 60,000 each year in the country.
To minimize the task of parents and police in searching the missing children, there has been several online websites from non-government organizations.
IT minister Ravi Shankar in Bangalore said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is keen on making a portal for lost and found children in India, reports Shilpa Phadnis and Sujit John of TheTimes of India. He added that this portal will be a great help in tracking the children and reunite them with their parents as most of the children are found but still unable to get back home safely.
Most of the missing children are never found and forced to work as bonded laborers, sex workers, and trafficked across the country and world. Bangalore, the IT hub accepted the request with brisk willingness to work on the portal and make it available to the public and government as early as next week of July itself.
