Three minor girls raped in U.P. juvenile home

The alleged rape of three minor girls in a State-run juvenile home in Allahabad has sent shock waves in official circles with an embarrassed administration ordering a magisterial enquiry into the heinous crime.

The police arrested the watchman of the juvenile home, while the superintendent of the home was placed under suspension. The action against the chowkidar and the superintendent was taken on Friday after a complaint was lodged at the Shivkuti police station on Thursday night.

Police said that the watchman has admitted to the crime.

The SP (city) of Allahabad, S.K. Yadav said the other inmates of the home were being interrogated and the possibility of other minor girls being allegedly sexually assaulted by the chowkidar has not been ruled out by the police.
