Bhopal, Oct 6 (PTI) Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today said his government will bring a bill in the next session of the Assembly to provide death penalty for those guilty of sexual violence against children.

"We will bring this bill in the next session. After the Assembly passes it, it would be sent to the Centre," Chouhan said.

The chief minister was speaking at a function here to welcome Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi's `Safe Childhood - Safe India' campaign, aimed at spreading awareness about child safety.

"We should be united in uprooting the deadly mentality which gives rise to sexual violence against children....It is very painful when we hear news of sexual assaults on kids as young as two years," Chouhan said.

Satyarthi said that his tour, which started on September 11, will cover 11,000 kilometres and pass through 22 states before concluding, on October 16, at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in Delhi.
