New Delhi, Feb 23 (UNI) An NGO Human Rights Protection Group--today appealed to the Centre to take immediate action to save 2700 inmates of a Raipura(Rajasthan ) orphanage which is isolated by certain groups with the alleged support of the local administration for the last few days.

Food supply to the orphanage has been cut off and the students in the complex have been prevented from appearing in their examinations, the Group's Secretary George Joseph said in a memorandum submitted to various Ministers and Members of Parliament.

The Orphanage is run by the Emmanual Mission International, Kota, which also runs 49 schools in Rajasthan.

Some elements, under the garb of religious groups are attacking the institutions and their vehicles, the memorandum said. The isolation of the orphanage had started ten days ago and the situation is serious, it said.

Dr M A Thomas, octogenerian archbishop of the Emmanual Church, said the Urban Improvement Trust Chairman and City Mayor Mr Mahavarlal has allegedly pasted a notice outside the schools and orphanage today to close them down in three days. He said the Enmmnuel Hospital there, also was under attack by the same groups.
