Many children become addicted to drugs and alcohol as a result of a lack of contact, which may lead to murder and sex attacks.Dr Kaushal also expressed worries about the lack of smartphones with cheap internet for children.They are often exposed to porn and violent films.They are also unable to distinguish between the real and the reel life.

Parents must spend more time with their children to avoid all this, according to state police chief Ashok Kumar.Police are a law enforcement department and may only take action if a crime is committed by minors.However, to stop them, society must ensure that children are on the right track.Only then can we prevent such occurrences.
