Delhi High Court lays down strict orders on who will visit abused blind kids
The Delhi High Court has said that no one, other than concerned authorities, will be allowed to meet the blind kids who were sexually abused by a British national at the National Association for the Blind.
The order was issued after the Delhi Police said that the blind home was facing difficulty due to aggressive efforts for intervention by NGOs and the media seeking to interview the victims.
The court said that only representatives of the Delhi State Legal Services Authority, the Department of Social Welfare shall be permitted to interact with the children.
The court said they were concerned that the fate of the investigation may be affected if there is no control on who visits the home.
The court will also frame rules on volunteers and donors who can visit the special schools.
54-year-old Murray Dennis Ward, the British national, has been remanded to judicial custody for abusing three blind kids at the special home.
The victims have recorded their statement before the court and police. The court has now listed the matter for 21 September.
