The High Court has issued rule asking why not order would be given to compensate and rehabilitate the children who are victims of rape. The High Court bench of Justice Md. Mojibur Rahman Mian and Justice Md. Kamrul Hossain Mollah issued the rule on Wednesday. The rule also wanted to know why not order would be given to the government to formulate a regulation to compensate the children who are victims of rape whether the case is proved or not.

Barrister Abdul Halim took part in the hearing for the writ petitioner. Advocate Isharat Hasan and Advocate Shayla Jahan accompanied him. The rule asked 15 persons including Home Secretary, Women and Children Affairs Secretary to answer within seven days.

An organization named ‘Children Charity Foundation’ filed the writ with the High Court on January 2 attaching three incidents of rape published in the mass media in different times.

Lawyer Abdul Halim said, 97 per cent accused in rape case are acquitted. Is that mean 97 per cent incidents of rape did not happen? The reason of acquittal is that the state fails to present proper evidences. Then why victims will be responsible? They have self dignity. Education of the children has been damaged. These children cannot go to schools. Then where they would go? Here comes the matter of responsibility of the state. There are regulations across the world to compensate the rape victims. We have submitted the example that Indian Supreme Court ordered to compensate a rape victim by paying 10 lakh rupees.
