In a letter to the district magistrate, the commission asked DM to ensure that the victim's identity is not disclosed during the process of investigation in a matter where a minor girl was allegedly raped, murdered and cremated without her parents' consent in Delhi under POCSO Act 2012.
"You are requested to ensure that the victim's identity is not disclosed during the process of investigation as prescribed under Section 23 of POCSO Act, 2012 and Section 74 of Juvenile Justice Act, 2015 and furnish action taken report in respect to the following within 48 hours from the date of issue of this letter," said NCPCR in a letter.

Earlier on Wednesday, the NCPCR issued notice to Twitter India asking it to take action against the Twitter handle of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi allegedly for violating the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act by revealing Delhi's Nangal rape victim's identity.
On August 1, a nine-year-old girl was allegedly raped and killed by a priest and three employees of a crematorium near Delhi Cantonment in southwest Delhi, the police had said.
Delhi Police registered a case against four accused on the basis of the statement of the minor's mother who alleged that her daughter was raped, murdered and cremated without their consent on Sunday.
The accused persons have been booked under Sections 302, 376 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code, along with the relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act and the SC/ST Act. (ANI)
