News18

As India continues to battle a severe second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, many children across the country were being rendered homeless with their parents dying from the infection. Taking note of the situation, Union Minister Smriti Irani on Tuesday informed that such children should be brought to the police or a district's Child Welfare Committee in order to ensure their protection.

'If you come to know of any child who has lost both parents to Covid and has no one to take care of her/him, inform Police or Child Welfare Committee of your district or contact Childline 1098. It is your legal responsibility," she said.
