After the trauma of floods in Ladakh, it was a nightmare of a different kind for over 28 Ladakh children, who were brought allegedly from the camps to Jammu by an NGO called Youth Movement for Peace. The NGO has being charged with illegal confinement and fraud.
The district Administration has now handed the children back to Ladakh Budhist Association, further to be restored to their families, reports CNN-IBN.
“They have not taken any consent of parents,.from the Deputy Commissioner, and have no legal papers,” said General secretary Ladakh Budhhist Association PT Kunzang.
The NGO office was attacked by local Shiv Sena over two weeks alleging that they were involved into conversions. Even as those charges are yet to proved, initial investigations have revealed that the NGO had no legal consent of parents or the administration. Also, the infrastructure promised by them was completely missing.
“We found they had no facility as they had promised to the children,” said Deputy Commissioner MK Diwedi.
Police have arrested five people including the NGOs president Vikas Sharma on charges of kidnapping, wrongful confinement and criminal conspiracy. The NGO representatives, however, say they are being targeted.
“Everyone is playing politics here, We have the approval of parents,” said Member of Youth Movement of Peace Meenakshi
And even as controversy gets murkier, for these children the trauma still continues.
