New Delhi, Nov 14 (IANS) Former Supreme Court judge Gyan Sudha Misra on Tuesday said there is a need to enact special safety law for children in the country.

She said this at a programme that was attended by parents of Pradhyumn, who was killed in his Gurugram-based school two months ago.

"Parliament needs to enact special safety law for children in the country," Misra said while addressing the gathering at Rajendra Bhawan here, according to a release.

Pradhyumn's father Barun Chandra Thakur, who has formed Pradhyumn Foundation, said would dedicate his life to the cause of children.

Thakur said he would move around the country in order to ensure that the foundation's Child Safety Campaign, which was flagged off on the Children's Day here, got fructified, the release said.

Asking "what was the fault of my son", Sushama, mother of Pradhyumn, reiterated her demand for justice.

Misra joined the Child Safety Campaign at ITO in Delhi on Tuesday, where she was accompanied by many parents and activists.

Supreme Court lawyer Kamalesh Mishra said there should be an association of parents and teachers to discuss child-related issues.
