On Friday opposition AIADMK made an appeal in the Puducherry assembly seeking a judicial probe into the alleged incidents of sexual abuse of some school girls in the Union Territory.
Raising the issue, Deputy Legislature party leader of AIADMK A.Anbalagan said government should also come out with a ‘white paper’ on the alleged incidents as it has tarnished the image of the Union Territory.
He said a woman judge could hold the probe.
Anbalagan said a group of persons had allegedly indulged in luring some school girls into prostitution under duress.
A police complaint was also lodged against the accused and as the complaints also related to some police officials, government had initiated action against eight police officials, including a sub-inspector. All these officials have since been suspended, he said.
Anbalagan said some outfits had been holding agitations seeking intensified action against the culprits.
“The incident has tarnished the image of the Union Territory and there should be immediate judicial inquiry into the incident,” he said.
