According to a statement reportedly given to the police by the caretaker: “He took the girls to a small room and locked it from inside.
“He fiddled with their underclothes claiming that he was doing a check-up and sexually assaulted them.
“First the girls resisted, then cried, but he gagged them and held both their arms with one hand as he continued to assault them.
“He did not let them go till he was done. One by one, he assaulted 12 girls the same way.”
The accused, a a gazetted officer, was enrolled as a welfare officer by the Delhi government in 1998 and posted at the home since August 2015, the Hindustan Times reported on Thursday.
