Goa Police To Probe NGO’s Role In Juvenile Smuggling Episode

Goa Police said that inquiry would be conducted against a prominent NGO into the juvenile smuggling episode if some evidences found against it.

Superintendent of Police (North) Vijay Singh informed that the inquiry would be conducted against Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) NGO, which receives funding specially from the UK, with the caretakers of Apna Ghar – a state-run shelter home alleging that some of the children were pushed into crime when they were in the custody of the NGO.

Demanding police inquiry into the entire episode, the caretakers attached to ‘Apna Ghar’ had alleged that two of the four children arrested by police recently for robberies were in custody of SCAN which had taken them from the protective home for rehabilitation.

Meanwhile, stating that there is nothing to be probed into the matter, Director of Woman and Child Welfare Sanjiv Gadkar said that the children were in NGO custody when they were arrested and not when they were involved in robbery.
