Gurugram, May 2

A juvenile offender was allegedly thrashed brutally for three days by two fellow inmates in a child protection home in Faridabad.

The victim, who is lodged in the child protection home in a case of religious fanaticism and quarrelling, also accused the in-charge of the child protection home of being involved in the matter. An FIR was registered in this regard at the NIT Faridabad police station yesterday.

According to the complaint filed by the 17-year-old, the police of the Mundkati police station in Palwal district had apprehended him in a case of religious fanaticism and quarrelling. The Juvenile Justice Board had sent him into the Faridabad protection home in September last year.

In-charge accused of involvement

The in-charge of the child protection home asked two boys, who were also juvenile offenders, to take me to a room that was out of the range of the CCTV camera. They brutally thrashed me with a baton and a plastic pipe for about 15 minutes and I suffered many injuries. They also called me names. They thrashed me for three days from September 9 to 11 in 2023. — The victim
