A day after inspector general of police (Hisar range) Anil Kumar Rao formed a special investigation team (SIT) to re-investigate the alleged sexual abuse of girls at a shelter home in Kaimiri village of Hisar district, the SIT recorded the statements of the remaining seven girls of the shelter house.

The statement of one of the girl inmates had already been recorded by the police.

In their statements, all the eight girls of the shelter home did not accuse anybody of sexual exploitation. However, two girls told the police that they had physical relations with their consent with two male inmates of the shelter home.

When contacted, Hisar DSP Bhagwan Dass, who is heading the SIT, confirmed, “Two of the girl inmates of the shelter home admitted having physical relationship with male inmates, with their consent.”

He added, “One of these girls is already married and also mother of a child. The police have conducted her medical examination. Another girl, who is 17-year-old, told the police that she had relationship with a boy of the shelter home with her consent, but she refused to go for medical examination.”

Sources said that for further investigations in the case, the police were likely to arrest the two accused who were inmates of the shelter home and now adults.

Meanwhile, district child protection officer Sunita Yadav was not happy with the police functioning and accused them of violating the Juvenile Justice Act by taking the girls to the crime spot for mapping the crime scene.

“Police not only took them to the crime spot, but also before the accused, which is violation of the Juvenile Justice Act”, she added.

She also said that before taking the girls for medical examination, the girls were forced to sit at the police station for more than one hour.

“Police not only took them to the crime spot, but also before the accused, which is violation of the Juvenile Justice Act”, she added.
