Wrong-doings at Karkardooma shelter home alleges Congress
New Delhi, Aug 19: Delhi Mahila Congress chief Sharmishtha Mukherjee alleged wrong-doings in a women's shelter home in Karkardooma area and demanded action by the city government and police in this regard.
A complaint was lodged by the Delhi Mahila Congress workers at Anand Vihar police station claiming that "terribly wrong things" were detected by them in a sting operation at the facility, she said in a press conference.
The Congress leader demanded the AAP government to order a social audit of government shelter homes for women by a neutral agency.
In the wake of the Muzaffarpur and Deoria incidents, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had asked the All India Mahila Congress to find out the condition of state-run shelter homes for women across the country, she said.
The Delhi Women Congress volunteers approached seven shelter homes in the city with a plea of distributing sweets and fruits to the inmates. We were given access by three of the homes, Mukherjee said.
"The condition at two of these shelter homes was satisfactory, while at the Karkardooma shelter home, the party workers found the condition terribly wrong," she added.
A video of the sting operation was also released by the party.
