Juvenile homes are hell-holes India should be ashamed of
The Delhi Police last week told the Delhi High Court that they have arrested a guard of a government-run children’s home in Alipur for allegedly sodomising a seven-year-old HIV positive boy. The court had ordered a suo motu enquiry into the incident after media reports. The boy was brought to the home three years ago by an NGO after his mother died of AIDS. His stepfather was lodged in Tihar jail for raping his daughter.
