    CBI to probe Delhi's ashram where women were kept 'like animals'

    0 Not allowed!
    Aghast at revelations that more than 100 women and minor girls were locked up behind metal doors in "animal-like conditions" with many being sexually exploited for years inside a fortress-like ashram, the Delhi high court on Wednesday ordered a CBI investigation against the organisation Adhyatmik Vishwa Vidyalaya and its founder, Virender Dev Dixit.

    A bench of acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar asked the CBI director to immediately set up a special investigation team (SIT) to investigate FIRs lodged in Delhi and case records relating to complaints of missing girls, commission of sexual offences and even a case of suicide in the ashram.

    The HC's directions came after it was informed about the state of the ashram by the court-appointed inspection panel, consisting of lawyers Nandita Rao, Ajay Verma and
    Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal. The court issued its order following a hearing that lasted nearly four hours.
