Ghosh's tweet comes in the wake of eight-year-old girl's rape in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district.
"We need to wake up and protect our children. because if we don't, no one else will," he added.
The minor's body was recovered from Rassana forest in Kathua on January 17, a week after she went missing while grazing horses in the forest area. She was held captive inside a temple and was sedated before being raped and murdered.
