Systemic #Rape and Sexual Torture of #Children in a #Shelter Near #Mumbai

The Shelter Chandraprabha Charitable Trust

Shocking tales of rape and sexual torture have emerged from a shelter for children near Mumbai.

The head of the shelter Ajit Dabholkar and his manager Lalita Tonde were arrested on Tuesday.

Pune-based social worker Anuradha Sahasrabuddhe of Pune Childline, who is a complainant in the case, said the children between ages 5-15 years were raped, sexually tortured, and forced to have sex with each other.  These atrocities were filmed.  The children told Sahasrabuddhe that they “were forced to eat dog excreta if they resisted and locked up. If they threw up, they had to eat the vomit.”

Physical and sexual abuse children in shelters and orphanages in India is rampant, and while the government acknowledges it, little has been done to monitor NGOs and shelters and ensure the protection of the children.
