In a shocking incident, two minors, both cousins in Uttar Pradesh’s Gorakhpur were repeatedly burnt with tongs and made to eat human excreta by their family members as they were upset for talking to two boys of their school.
According to the reports, the girls who fled home and escaped to Nepal were found on Tuesday night from the Nepal border. The victims revealed their ordeal to the police and members of the Child Welfare Committee. They had burn injuries on their hands and refused to go back home with family members.
Gorakhpur Police had sent their family to Nepal to bring the girls back. However, a call by Nepal-based NGO that contacted a city-based NGO Manav Seva Sansthan, led to timely action. It saved the girls from being handed over again to them.
“The victims told us that they were burnt with tongs and force-fed human excreta. One SI with a team of the NGO brought them back to Gorakhpur from Nepal,” Pipiganj’s station house officer Dinesh Mishra said.
However, for now, the victims have been sent to a shelter on the instructions of the Child Welfare Committee. Further investigation is underway.
