Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 7: District administration Kathua raided an 'un-registered' orphanage at Ward No. 4 in Nag Nagar area of Kathua on Friday after reports of sexual harassment with children in the 'illegal' orphanage which was being run in a rented house. However, a question mark has been raised on the working of the district administration who remained mute spectator for last more than 4 years about the 'illegal orphanage' being running in a rented house under their nose. As per reports, acting on the complaints of locals, a team of district administration along with police reached today evening on the spot and raided the 'illegal' orphan home while rescued 22 children (8 girls and 12 boys) from the illegal home which was being reportedly run illegally for last 4 years. "The man who was running the illegal orphanage home hailing from Kerala namely Antony (70) has been detained while his wife has gone to Kerala and could not be arrested", said sources, adding that the rescued children have been shifted to Nari Niketan and Baal Ashram. However, there was no guard in the 'self-styled' home and the allegations of sexual harassment with the children of the illegal orphanage are being investigated, said a senior police officer.
He further said that the rescued children from the illegal orphanage are between the age group of 8 to 16 years. Police sources said that they have seized a computer, pen drives and other electronic equipments from the illegal orphanage while a team of Cyber Crime will further investigate that whether any objectionable material was saved in the hard disk of the computer or pen drives.
The statements of the children are being recorded and if necessary, their medical test would be conducted, the officer said.
"Whether the children in the illegal orphanage were sexually exploited or not would be clear after investigation", said a senior officer.
