“Children need care & support. No one should take advantage of any helpless child. I am happy to know that every person who has information about child abuse is punished for failing to report the offence. Non-reporting of cases to protect the image of person or family is a bigger crime,” she wrote in her next tweet.

I thought that atleast bade papa (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) would understand, he lives in a different society and would have a different mentality. But he was like ‘chacha hai, aisa kabhi nahi kar sakte’.”
