Apna Ghar inmate who blew cover off sexual abuse at Home is chosen for bravery award

She accused the home incharge, Jaswanti Devi, of using her as a domestic help for six years, and of denying her food for days whenever she refused to perform the menial tasks given to her. She alleged that Jaswanti's son-in-law Jai Bhagwan frequently visited the home and abused inmates physically and sexually.

Home inmates were allegedly forced to perform and entertain guests at weddings, and those who protested were tied to windows, stripped naked and compelled to perform sexual acts on each other while Jaswanti Devi watched.

Jaswanti and a dozen other accused have been arrested.
