Thane Police held a seminar Wednesday to help officers understand intricacies of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012, introduced to mete out strict punishment to those who target minors.
"All senior officers attended. Several legal experts explained the Act. Our officers are now better equipped to handle cases registered under the Act," said commissioner K P Raghuvanshi.
An officer said cases from all over Maharashtra and other states and issues such as possible loopholes and best measures to strengthen court cases were discussed at the seminar.
"We are learning to work with the new Act. The purpose (of the seminar) was to make sure cases do not suffer in courts," he said.
