New Delhi, Dec 30 (IBNS): The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) has said that they found cases of sexual abuse and unhygienic conditions at a Delhi shelter home for girls run by an NGO.

They came across such cases during a surprise inspection on Thursday.

According to the commission, the girls are abused by the employees at the house  by administering chilli powder in their private parts as punishment.

An FIR has been registered under sections of the Protection Of Children from Sexual Offences Act and Juvenile Justice Act.

All the girls belong to the age group between 6 and 15.

“We got the police to register an FIR. The police told us they had deployed personnel in plainclothes at the home to monitor the activities,” the DCW said in a statement.

The expert committee, during their visit, found that inmates were allegedly forced to do household chores and abused by the staff.

“The older girls in the group said they were would be forced to do all chores such as cooking and cleaning toilets since the home did not have sufficient domestic staff. They were also asked to take care of the younger girls,” the DCW said.

“The committee was appalled at the forms of punishment meted out to young children and teenage girls in the home. The girls mentioned that the home staff forcefully administered chilli powder to them in their private parts as punishment. Other forms of punishment included beating with scales for not keeping the rooms clean. The girls were not permitted to go home during summer and winter vacations,” the statement said.

The Delhi government has been informed about the matter, who will conduct an enquiry on the same.
