The functioning of the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) has come under the scrutiny of a Delhi court.

The court has directed the city government to look into an allegation of the committee releasing minor girls, victims of human trafficking, to relatives. The court’s order came in a case pertaining to the raids conducted by Delhi Police Crime Branch and an NGO at various placement agencies here last year from where many girls, including minors, were recovered and handed over to CWC.

The NGO, Shakti Vahini, told the court that the girls were released by CWC without its consultation and the victims had again been pushed to work as maids, while one of them had also been raped.
