Begging punishment; father skips inquiry

Prakash alias Prabhu accused of forcing his daughter into begging recently, on Friday failed to appear before the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) for inquiry.

Sources told Deccan Herald, Prakash cited health reasons for his inability to depose for the enquiry. Instead he sought another day to appear, and accordingly, he has been summoned to appear on April 3. The committee has already completed the inquiry of the 13-year-old daughter of the accused who is inclined to join her father. She is provided shelter at Juvenile Girls Home on Lalita Mahal road.
