Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje approved today a proposal to set up 55 courts under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act in the state.

Each district would have at least one such court to deal with cases of crime against children, especially rape and to ensure that accused are convicted at the earliest, Raje said in a statement.

One such court is already operational in the state capital, the statement said.

Total 660 new posts would be created and filled in these courts.

The POCSO courts would be set up in Bikaner, Balotara, Banswara, Chittorgarh, Churu, Dausa, Dholpur, Dungarpur, Sriganganagar, Hanumangarh, Jaipur, Jalore, Jaisalmer, Jhunjhunu, Karauli, Merta, Pratapgarh, Rajsamand, Swai Madhopur, Sikar, Sirohi, Jodhpur and Tonk, the statement said.
