Women and child development minister Maneka Gandhi has proposed that all convicted sexual offenders above the age of 12 be included in a database the home ministry is working on as part of a network to keep track of criminals.
So far, plans were being made to include only adults – those aged 18 and above.
Sources said Maneka came up with the suggestion at a meeting with home minister Rajnath Singh earlier this week.
