Two sisters, 8-year-old Himanshi and 3-year-old Deepali were lying on bed in a dark room. They were barely alive and had wounds on their bodies.

Police rescued these girls after being alerted by the neighbors and rushed them to Bhim Rao Ambedkar Hospital in Rohini. These girls were abandoned by their parents and had been locked inside their home for days.

Their father, Bunty, was jobless and alcoholic while mother, Rajini, was a house wife. The couple also had a 5-year-old son.  Their mother left the home two months back with her only son. On 15th August, Bunty locked the two little girls in their house and went away.

Two police constables have been deputed 24x7 for the rescued sisters, who are recovering well at the hospital. They wounds have been dressed. Their grandmother was tracked down by the police; she lives in an old age home and has refused to take care of the girls.

Meanwhile, police contacted the Delhi Child Welfare Committee, which agreed to send the girls to a rehabilitation centre, after they were discharged from the hospital.
