Two people arrested in connection with inhuman treatment of children

Five children claim that they were forced to watch pornographic videos, enact the sexual acts performed in them and eat excrement at a boarding school in India. Both the owner and manager of the children's boarding school in western India have been arrested as police being their investigation. 

Inspections for children's homes, shelters, ashrams and boarding schools are inadequate and many privately-run facilities are not even registered, according to a February 2013 report by Human Rights Watch.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The 52-year-old male owner of the Chandraprabha Charitable Trust along with his 30-year-old female manager were arrested on this week after a police raid on the school in Karjat city in Maharashtra state.

"We received a police complaint from the Childline charity saying that one child had gone home for the holidays and confessed to his mother that abuses were happening," Karjat's Police Inspector R.R. Patil says.

Starvation never takes a vacation --

"Five children in total have now come forward, and we have booked the two suspects under various offences," including unnatural sex (sodomy), wrongful confinement and sexual assault, he said.

The boarding school accommodated 28 underprivileged children, 4 to 14 years old, for ten months out of the year. Most of the children were home on holiday at the time of the raid.

Police are now trying to find out if other children who attended the school were abused in the same manner.

Childline's Anuradha Sahasrabudhe said the children had spoken about all kinds of sexual and physical abuse.

"It's a horrific case. The children have been telling us about the sexual abuse going on there. There has been oral sex, there has been forced sex where minor boys have been asked to rape minor girls. These things have been photographed," Saharasabudhe told TV reporters.

"Children have been punished by making them eat dog excreta and when they vomited, they were made to eat vomit."

Police say the boarding school had been in operation since 2002. However, the school was not registered and had therefore escaped government inspections by child welfare officials.

Child sexual abuse is disturbingly common in homes, schools, and residential care facilities in India.

Inspections for children's homes, shelters, ashrams and boarding schools are inadequate and many privately-run facilities are not even registered, according to a February 2013 report by Human Rights Watch.

The Indian government has neither a record of all the orphanages and other institutions operating in the country, nor a list of the children they are housing.
