“Let me share my own experience with you all here. When I was a very young kid, a lift-man once touched me inappropriately. Since I had good communication with my parents, I told them about this incident,” he said.

Akshay was speaking at an international conference on human trafficking in Mumbai.

Later, the same person was caught in another case and was found to be a habitual offender, the actor said.

Parents and children must have a free interaction so that such offenders are identified immediately.
