Union Minister for Women and Child Development Krishna Tirath on Saturday said she would rectify any lacuna in the laws to check the menace of female feticide in the country.
Tirath, after assuming charge of her assigned ministry in the capital on Saturday, said: "To rectify domestic violence and female feticide...you know there are a number of legislations to curb this practice, if a lacuna is found, it will be rectified. We can stop the cases of female feticide through educating the masses," said Krishna Tirath.
Activists say female feticide is rising because of the availability of technologies like ultrasonography and amniocentesis to determine the gender of fetuses at the request of the parents.
As against the compilations of statistics, Krishna Tirath in her role as a Minister of Women and Child Development is determined to mend the legal discrepancies, if any.
