Shocked at the revelations of alleged sexual abuse of minor girls by an 18-year-old accused caretaker at the NGO, Suparaana Ka Aangan, the parents of other underprivileged children housed at the centre have started taking their wards back.
The development came after the district administration shut down the NGO on Friday.
The parents of 15 children had camped outside the NGO on Wednesday while demanding their children back.
Children whose parents did not possess valid documents were not allowed to go with their parents and instead were shifted to another shelter.
“Suparna Sethi visited our slum and requested us that we send our children to her NGO. She assured us that our kids would have a better future. Instead, she has ruined the lives of these children,” said Nurjaha, a parent.
Nisha Yadav, whistleblower in the orphanage abuse case, requested the parents not to send their children to any NGO without proper verification. She also asked them to keep a tab on the treatment meted out to children at shelter homes.
“We handed over six children to their parents after verifying documents and 37 were shifted to other NGOs in the city. We have four NGOs registered with us in Gurgaon. The children were sent to Arushi, Adhaar and Shanti NGOs. More parents arrived to take their children but the documentation work is under process,” said deputy commissioner PC Meena.
