The team of the Crime Investigation Department (CID) has intensified investigation on Friday against Nirmal Hriday a shelter home run by Missionaries of Charity for allegation of selling children from the shelter home.
A team of CID raided at the institution’s office situated at East Jail Road in Lalpur police station area in the State Capital.
The CID team on Friday reached there to question the office bearers of Nirmal Hriday. Raids are being conducted under the leadership of Inspector Ravikant Kumar, in-charge of the team of CID Ranchi.
Kumar informed that the CID raided the institutions office and gathered some documents to investigate the case properly. “The search and investigation is going on and right now the team is not able to say anything related to the case. It is too early to disclose about the case. We have gathered enough documents about the institutions,” he added.
In July 2018, a case was registered against Nirmal Hriday at the Kotwali Police Station of the State Capital on charges of child trafficking.
At that time the police arrested some people and sent them to jail during the investigation. Some of the children allegedly sold by the office bearers were also recovered by the police. Then it was revealed that the records of many children are not available to the police.
Despite having clear knowledge of Juvenile Justice Act in the FIR, the directors of the institution allegedly have also been accused of separating the children from the mother to another couple. In view of the seriousness of the case, its investigation was entrusted to the CID.
The CID also conducted a raid on 23 September 2019 in Nirmal Hriday, an organization of Missionaries of Charity. The raid was conducted under the leadership of Inspector Ravikant Kumar, in-charge of CID Ranchi team. But no responsible person of the institution was found there. So the CID had to return empty-handed.
