NHRC Recommends Delhi Police to Assess Security at Juvenile Homes

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has asked Delhi Police to carry out an assessment of all juvenile observation homes located in Delhi and make sure that the necessary security and safety adjustments are in place at those centres. The NHRC suggested Delhi Police to carry out an evaluation of security at juvenile centres after getting to know about the lax security arrangements at those places.

Sources reveal that the Commission had reportedly carried out an enquiry at the Seva Kutir Juvenile Home in North Delhi, where several brutal incidents and drug and sexual abuse related cases among the inhabitants came to light last year. The NHRC took notice of the reports published by media and decided to conduct a thorough inspection of the place. However, during the enquiry, NHRC found out that the private security agency, which was responsible for maintaining security at Seva Kutir, had failed in fulfilling its duty. NHRC had also found out that the security agency failed in curbing on the supply of surgical blades and contraband into Seva Kutir, which were used in executing violent acts.

The NHRC has recommended the Delhi Government to submit a report regarding the action taken by the police, within a period of six weeks. It has also instructed the private agency to make sure that security guards are adequately deployed at Seva Kutir, in accordance with the directions and strength suggested by Delhi police.
