At least 26 women were found missing from two shelter homes in Pratapgarh during surprise checks conducted by the district administration.

During the inspection of Jagrati Shelter Home in Ashtbhuja Nagar, which is run by former district BJP Mahila Morcha chief Rama Mishra, district magistrate Shambhu Kumar found that 15 women were registered but only one woman was present there, officials said.

The shelter home manager said the other registered women had gone out for work.

During the check at the other shelter home in Achalpur, sub-divisional magistrate Satya Prakash Singh found 12 women missing out of the 15 registered. The caretaker of this home, Neha Praveen, said they were not getting external funding and the shelter was being run with their personal resources.

The district magistrate said 26 women in all were found missing and a probe is on in the matter.

The inspection at the shelter homes was conducted in the light of the recent exposes in the shelter homes of Deoria in Uttar Pradesh and Muzaffarnagar in Bihar.
