Probe ordered into functioning of Kerala orphanages
Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala State Human Rights Commission has ordered a comprehensive enquiry into the functioning of orphanages and shelter homes for the poor and destitute in the state.
The order, issued by KSHRC chairman Justice J B Koshi, comes in the wake of increasing number of `Arabi Kalyanam` (marrying off Muslim girls to Arab nationals) from orphanages and reports of ill-treatment of inmates in orphanages and poor homes.
