HYDERABAD:18-year-old Bhavani, who was rescued from the clutches of her cousins who allegedly ill-treated and brutally tortured her for months, has been shifted to the State Home for Girls at Nimboliadda.

According to Neredmet police, she was first sent to Gandhi Hospital and after doctors certified that her injuries have been healed, she was moved to the state home.

State Commission for Protection of Child Rights member Achuta Rao, who spearheaded rescue of the teenager said that he would approach the government for her rehabilitation and education. Meanwhile, police are waiting for Bhavani’s cousin Srinivasa Rao and his wife Laxmi to return from pushakaram.

Rao said that about 23 such incidents of brutality have been reported at SCPCR from the two Telugu states since June 2015.

“Government needs to find a permanent solution to such cases by issuing an order,” he said. Bhavani was lodged in the orphanage after her parents passed away in 2008. She was staying with her cousins for at least five years after her cousin Srinivasa Rao took her home from an orphanage.
