Baripada, Sept 12: The administration of Adruta Sishu Sadan at Sirisbani in Baripada town of Mayurbhanj district is not taking proper care of the inmates.
A group of children was captured under a camera lens while they were busy preparing food under hazardous conditions.
They were preparing food for the inmates using LPG stove following which our reporter conducted an inquiry into the allegations of alleged torture to the inmates of the child care center.
It was found that a total of 49 underprivileged children are staying in the childcare center. The center is not following government guidelines for healthy food supply to the children. The inmates are being served poor quality food having low nutritional value and caretakers are engaging them in various odd jobs inside the centre.
Mayurbhanj district Collector Vineet Bhardwaj has said stringent action would be taken against the childcare center following an inquiry into the matter.
