An agreement has been reached between the DCW and Koshish, wherein the Koshish team shall inform the Commission immediately in case any instances of abuse are discovered in the homes.
Koshish has earlier conducted similar audits in several states, including Bihar, that brought to light the Muzaffarpur shelter home horror.
Sisodia, on the other hand, said that the Delhi government is “keen to overhaul and improve the functioning of all the shelter homes and has therefore invited an external agency” to examine the status and issues of homes in a non-partisan manner.
The decision came after nine minor girls reportedly went missing from a shelter home in the national capital on Monday.
