The Administrative Council (AC) which met here under the chairmanship of Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha, accorded sanction to the proposal of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Department to shift one of the four Fast Track Special Courts for POCSO to Ramban.
Earlier, it was decided that to exclusively deal with the cases of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, two courts shall be established one each at Srinagar and Jammu. Further, two more courts at Kulgam and Reasi were approved to be established exclusively for women related offences. However, taking into consideration the number of respective cases, it was decided to shift the seat of one of the Fast Track Special Court from Reasi to Ramban.
These Courts, once functional, will speed up the trial of cases registered under POCSO Act and ensure timely delivery of justice to victims.
