India child sex abuse 'hidden', says Human Rights Watch

Child victims of sexual abuse in India are often mistreated and humiliated by police, the US-based Human Rights Watch says in a new report.

It says sexual abuse is "disturbingly common" in Indian homes, schools and care homes, and government systems to deal with the issue are inadequate.

Meenakshi Ganguly, the South Asia director at Human Rights Watch, spoke to the BBC's George Alagiah.
