The Child Welfare Committee (CWC) has written a letter to the Mumbai Police over the delay in rehabilitation of rescued children.
The letter states that the police do not submit medical and other important reports of the kids who require rehabilitation on time. At times, the police do not even appear before the committee for submission of the reports.
The letter dated November 25 and signed by CWC chairperson Vijaya Murthy is addressed to commissioner of police Dr Satyapal Singh. It also states that many police stations admit such children to children’s homes for safety but some police stations do not produce them before the CWC for further orders.
Taking serious note of this letter, the police have recently instructed all the police stations to take appropriate steps in this regard.
“An order issued by the deputy commissioner of police (enforcement branch) states that all senior police inspectors of the police stations have been instructed to take a note of the letter and instruct their officers to send a compliance report in this regard to the assistant commissioner of police, enforcement branch, at the earliest,” said a police officer.
