Chandigarh: The Punjab and Haryana High Court probe panel report on the Rohtak shelter home, Apna Ghar, has made shocking revelations. It says that the children were forced to perform oral sex and naked yoga. The report also says that about 101 inmates of the home were subjected to various forms of abuse. The shelter home inmates were used as construction labourers.
A speech and hearing impaired girl was sold thrice and another girl was reportedly found pregnant. Yet another inmate was found to be HIV positive by the probe team. Most of the girls were made to garland men, saying they were 'married', and forced to consent to physical relationship.
The panel asked the court to transfer the case from the Haryana Police and hand it over to an independent agency like the CBI for a thorough probe, prosecution and trial of the accused. The panel also suggested brain mapping and lie detector tests for all the seven accused and examination of all electronic equipment like laptops, computers, mobile phones, cameras and recording devices belonging to them to check allegations of child pornography.
