Jharkhand shelter home director, warden arrested for sexual abuse of girls
Jamshedpur Mother Teresa Welfare Trust shelter home director Harpal Singh, warden Geeta Kaur and two others have been arrested for sexually assaulting minor girls. They were absconding and the police detained them from MP.

RANCHI, June 18: The absconding director, warden and two others of the shelter home run by Mother Teresa Welfare Trust (MTWT), Jamshedpur, facing charges of sexual assault of minor girls, were nabbed in Madhya Pradesh and brought to Jamshedpur on transit remand, police said.

On June 6 a first information report (FIR) was lodged on a complaint by two of the minor girls of the Mother Teresa Welfare Trust (MTWT), Jamshedpur, in which they had accused the director and others of sexual assault and torture for about four years.

"On a tip-off to police, four accused of the case were arrested from Mada in Singrauli district of Madhya Pradesh and brought to Jamshedpur on transit remand. All the arrested accused would be produced before East Singhbhum Court, Jamshedpur," Subhash Chandra Jat, City Superintendent of Police, Jamshedpur told PTI.

The arrested were director of the shelter home Harpal Singh, 46, his wife Pushpa Rani Tirkey, 45, warden Geeta Kaur, 45, and one Aditya Singh, 20, all residents of Shamsher Tower, Khadangajhar, Jamshedpur, under East Singhbhum district.

Pushpa Rani Tirkey was chairperson of the East Singhbhum district child welfare committee (CWC).

Meanwhile, two minor girls who went missing during the shifting of the 40 children of the shelter home to another shelter home last Friday, have not been found.

There were 24 girls and 16 boys in the Government-registered shelter home. Thirtyeight of them were minors under 18 years of age.

Recently a similar but much bigger case had come to light in a shelter home in Bihar's Muzaffarpur district in which several higher-ups' involvement was alleged.
