HYDERABAD: A child rights organisation from Hyderabad on Friday alleged that a minor girl has been employed to work at a canteen run in Cyberabad police headquarters. The members of the organisation demanded action on the canteen contractor and take action against him.

Child Rights activist member Achyuta Rao said that an officer working in Cyberabad commissionerate has shared a picture of the 16-year-old working in the canteen run at the Cyberabad police commissionerate headquarters in Gachibowli on Friday morning.

As soon as the officials of child protection unit of Rangareddy district were alerted, a team rushed there but by the time the contractor managed to send the girl back home from there, he alleged.

Meanwhile, Cyberabad commissioner Sandeep Sandilya said, “Preliminary probe revealed that the girl was employed by the contractor. It is found that the girl has come to work for the second day, as her mother was not feeling well.” He said that details of the girl and her mother are being collected to find out the facts.
