The city police on Thursday arrested the caretaker of an NGO, Drone Foundation, for allegedly raping two HIV+ minor girls.
The accused, Ankur Gupta, 42, who is also HIV+, will be produced in court on Friday.
His mother and president of the NGO Sunita Gupta is a co-accused in the case. She is likely to be arrested on Friday, said Hamid Akthar, DCP south Gurgaon.
Meanwhile, the victims have recorded their statements in a local court.
“An HIV test was conducted on one of the minor victims. Her first test was negative and a second test would be conducted in AIIMS soon. Another test would be conducted after three months to ascertain whether she is infected with HIV or not," said Bharti Sharma, a member of National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) team.
The team rescued 14 children from the NGO during a raid on Tuesday.
The children have been shifted to the Naz Foundation in Delhi. “The children will be presented in court on Thursday. Our counsellors have been talking to the kids and all of them have shared their ordeal. They are adjusting well with other children. Their version seems to corroborate what National Commission for Protection of Child Rights has found,” said Anjali Gopalan, executive director, Naz Foundation.
"These children need special care and the Haryana government does not have a single shelter which is well equipped for such children," said Shakti Vahini executive director Nishi Kant, who was part of the team that conducted raid on Tuesday.
