Children not sent to school, Christian preacher staying without authorisation and more
Suspicious meat found in the kitchen and found the bill of beef in the garbage during an inspection
The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR), on Tuesday (21st November), called out the ‘Don Bosco Missionary’ in Bengaluru after it learned that the wards in the Missionary’s children’s home were being fed ‘suspicious meat’. Attaching a rough bill highlighting the order for beef, NCPCR on Twitter (X) said, “The team found suspicious meat in the kitchen during an inspection at Open Shelter, a children’s shelter run by the Don Bosco Missionary Organization in Davanagere, Karnataka.”
“We also found this bill of beef in the garbage. Despite the large number of Hindu children in the home, all the children are being made to practice Christianity and beef is being cooked. Notice is being issued for necessary action,” the NCPCR exposed.

NCPCR finds irregularities at children’s home of ‘Don Bosco Missionary’
On Sunday (19th October), the Chairman of the National Commission for Protection Of Child Rights (NCPCR) Priyank Kanoongo found several irregularities at a children’s home, which is run by the ‘Don Bosco Missionary’ in Bengaluru.
During the inspection, the NCPCR chief discovered that a child from Jodhpur (Rajasthan) who lost his way and ended up in Bengaluru was staying at the children’s home for several months.
He informed that the child should have been sent home in accordance with the rules but the children’s home chose to not comply with them. “I have given instructions to send him back to Jodhpur,” Priyank Kanoongo said in a tweet.

While highlighting the recurring issue of keeping children against their will at shelter homes, he pointed out, “Out of greed for funding, some child shelters hold children against their will and keep them away from their families. All of this is done in cahoots with the local authorities.”
The NCPCR Chairman raised alarm about the fact that the children kept in the shelter home of ‘Don Bosco Missionary’ are not sent to school. At the same time, he found a Christian preacher staying illegally in the children’s home for a long time.
“Many irregularities were found in the children’s home including lack of minimal infrastructure,” Priyank Kanoongoo tweeted. In a video shared by him, the NCPCR chief was seen confronting two women who work at the shelter home of ‘Don Bosco Missionary.’
The NCPCR is conducting a thorough investigation into the case and necessary action will be taken after the investigation.
