Alas! An NGO official put chili powder in a girl private Part as a punishment.
On Friday, the Delhi Commission of Women(DCW) found cases of sexual abuse and unhygienic conditions when they had a surprise inspection at a shelter home for girls run by an NGO located in southwest Delhi’s Dharma region.
DCW said that the staffs abused the girl by forcing them to do all household chores like cooking, cleaning rooms and toilets. If a girl was unable to finish the task, then she was punished by putting chilly powder in her private parts.
“The older girls in the shelter said that the staffs made them to do all household chores because they were short of domestic staff. They were also asked to take care of the younger girls”, the DCW said.
In a statement, they further said that the home has girls between the age of 6 to 15. Other punishments includes beating with scale for not cleaning a room properly. The girls were also not allowed to visit their home in summer and winter breaks.
The commission has informed this matter to the Delhi government’s women and child department and is set to have an inquiry for this issue.
