Such offences against children needed to be defined explicitly and countered through adequate penalties as an effective deterence. The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012 provides for protection of children from offences of sexual assault, sexual harassment and pornography with due regard for safeguarding the interest and well being of children.
