Amid the recent event at Koparkhairane where an 11-year old boy was sexually assaulted in the school bathroom by two of his classmates, the Navi Mumbai Police station is all set to start their campaign of 'Good Touch, Bad Touch' in schools. 

The campaign aims at educating kids about how to identify whether they're being sexually abused and further telling them to be aware of people who try to lure them by chocolates and gifts. A one to one interaction will be held by the police for kids of all age groups. There have been many incidents in the past where kids were sexually abused but they never understood what happened to them. Only after such sessions in schools, they stand up and complain to the authorities or parents.

In the incident where a 11-year old was sexually abused, the two classmates have been booked under relevant sections of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) and the police claim that they were under heavy influence of pornography. The survivor's parents had reported the case at Koparkhairane police station as soon as the kid narrated the incident. The police have further stated that the kid is still traumatised by the incident.    

The Police Didi campaign was launched three years ago where women police personnel were deployed in their area to educate and make kids aware of sexual assault in schools. Notably, the concept of 'Good Touch, Bad Touch' had garnered much-needed attention after there was an episode on the same on Satyamev Jayate hosted by Bollywood celebrity Aamir Khan on Star Plus.
