The Senate had taken a understand of every other Kasur incident in 2015 during which a minimum of 280 children had been filmed being sexually abused and their oldsters blackmailed over the footage with the Senate chairman referring the problem to the committee on human rights to propose the suitable regulation to curb the crime.
