Unbearable harassment lead women inmates to escape from shelter home

Inmates escape from shelter home

At present, the shelter home's functioning is being headed by former magistrate Swati Chavan.

Gaikwad said her ministry has sought funds of Rs 65 lakh so that the PWD department can construct a wall, an iron mesh and an additional room in the shelter home.

Earlier, 114 women were sent back to Bangladesh.

Presently, there are 108 women in the shelter home out of whom 58 are from Bangladesh. There are 50 women from different states including four from Maharashtra. The Bangladeshi women will be released on December 15 and efforts are on in that direction.
