Deoria | The Uttar Pradesh Police on Sunday rescued 24 girls from a shelter home in Deoria after Central Intelligence Bureau (CBI) revoked its license following an inspection. The police also arrested a couple who were the managers at the shelter home.
The Police were informed about the incident after a girl escaped from the shelter home and told police that they were ill-treated like servants.
Speaking to media, Superintendent of Police Rohan P Kanay said, “When the order to close this institution was made, our people went there and the organisation’s director misbehaved with our team. Today, after a girl escaped from there, we got to the reality of that place. There have been many big disclosures during the investigation. 24 children have been rescued safely so far. ”
The police official further informed that the shelter home director Girija Tripathi and her husband have been arrested while the investigation is still underway.
