CHILDLINE Facilitated Rescue & Restoration of 80 Children from a   Boys Hostel of central Rayagada town .

On 15th  our CHILDLINE team got information about this issue from CWC( Child Welfare Committee). The team rushed to  know actual matter . A 12 year old innocent boy after being tortured and abused  ran away from the hostel.He was found in the railway station rescued by the GRPF (Government Railway police Force)police. The police informed to the CWC about it. 

When clip_image002CHILDLINE staff reached the Railway Police station, they saw media fellows along with one member of CWC had  started interrogating the boy. There, in front of everybody, he opened the Pandora’s Box of humiliation, torture both mental and physical in the hostel.

After seeing and realising the situation,   CHILDLINE through CWC took the matter to the District Collector for a drastic action of the situation . District Administration finally filed an F.I.R (First Information Report) with the police and issued a warrant for arrest .  CHILDLINE with the help of District Administration,  rescued all the  children from the hostel and put them in a shelter home to restore them with their family after finishing the procedural follow-up.

On 16th, the CWC instructed CHILDLINE to trace each and every family for restoration of these  rescued children. The District Administration with the leadership of DSWO (District Social Welfare Officer) helped CHILDLINE restore the children to  their family . This process took  all of  four days . This was possible due to the deep involvement, influence and good rapport of the CHILDLINE with the District Administration.

Out of 8o, 62 children who  restored to the parents had admitted in residential hostels under ST & SC development department of govt. to continue their education. Rest of the other district children process is going on.
