DCW Chief meets Delhi Police chief over missing girls
NEW DELHI: The DCW chief, Swati Maliwal, on Friday met the Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik at Delhi Police Headquarters at ITO and expressed concerns over the disappearance of nine minor girls from Sanskar Ashram in Dilshad Garden on the intervening night of Saturday and Sunday. She asked the commissioner to speed up the investigation in the case and locate the girls at the earliest.
The Commissioner briefed her about the development in the case.
"I have requested the Delhi Police commissioner to use all possible resources to trace the missing girls. It has been more than five days that the girls went missing. They need to be traced early for their safety," Maliwal had earlier said.
Earlier, following orders from Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, the Delhi Commission of Women (DCW) on Thursday appointed Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS)'s "Koshish" to conduct social audit of all shelter homes for women and girls in Delhi. Maliwal along with other Commission members had already visited Sanskar Ashram, the shelter home from where nine girls are reported missing. Maliwal said these girls were earlier rescued from GB Road by the DCW.
