During a surprise check on Monday, CWC chairman Shakuntala Dull found that the shelter home officers allegedly gave shelters to 16 students hailing from Italy for three days. "We conducted surprise check at the shelter home and found 16 Italian students illegally staying there. Moreover, the officials of the shelter home did not intimate the CWC and other authorities in the district. This is in complete violation of laws. Hence, we have served notice on the shelter home," she said. "The surprise check was done following reports of sexual assault of inmates in homes in Bihar's Muzaffarpur and Deoria in Uttar Pradesh," she said.

Gurugram has over a dozen shelter homes run by different NGOs.
