Bhopal: As Bollywood actor Aamir Khan's TV show 'Satyamev Jayate' hit the chord with masses right from the onset, a city-based NGO has claimed to have received 12 fresh cases in related issues in the last three days.
Following the telecast of the second episode of the show on child sex abuse on May 13, the city office of Childline has suddenly received two cases related to sexual abuse and others of children being beaten up by their parents and relatives, NGO director Archana Sahay told PTI today. She said in the last three days, they received 12 cases related to children issues, while earlier the cases did not come in such high numbers.
In some cases, children being beaten up by parents or relatives leave their homes and come to Childline for help, she said, adding that one big change which Aamir's programme has brought about is that now even parents approach her organisation to seek help for their children.
It has raised the people's awareness on these sensitive issues, she added.
