The Bombay High Court ordered that the chief of Children’s Aid Society, which hit the headlines after allegations of forcing special children to watch performances by bar dancers, be suspended immediately.
Navnath Shinde has been accused of threatening some staff members for blowing the whistle on the New Year’s eve party — held on December 31, 2012, at the shelter home in Mankhurd – in which the alleged incident took place.
The organisation runs five shelter homes for children in the state.
The case came up for hearing when the employees had approached the police seeking protection.
The court, expressing its shock, had asked the police to investigate the matter and file a case.
