    Nagpur: A woman politician has been booked for using children as house helps. The said politician is Dhanashri Yerpude.

    Yerpude had kept three minor children at her home. The children are siblings. While the brothers are 14 and seven-year-old, their sister is 11 years of age. The siblings used to reside in Ajni.

    Around six months ago, their mother passed away, after which their father deserted them. Left to fend for themselves, the children were finally were taken in by Durgesh Madavi, who was considered as brother by the children”s mother.
    Madavi is a labourer and already had three mouths to feed. With a wife and two children to take care of, the added responsibility became too big for Madavi to handle.

    Madavi knew Yerpude and so, narrated his woes to her. Yerpude runs an ashramshala. Yerpude told him that henceforth, she will shoulder the responsibility of the children. A week ago, Madavi left the children with Yerpude. Thereafter, the children started residing in Yerpude”s house.

    Dhanashri Yerpude”s husband is paralysed. It is alleged that she started making the children do household chores.

    At the slightest of opportunity, the eldest of the three siblings informed about it to Child Line. Based on that information, Child Line volunteers and district child welfare officer Mushtaque Pathan reached the house of Yerpude and enquired from her about the children. Taken aback, Yerpude tried to mislead them by saying that she had brought them to admit them in schools.

    She locked horns with Pathan and Child Line volunteers. Thereafter, Pathan and the volunteers reached Dhantoli police station and filed a complaint against Yerpude, on the basis of which, Dhantoli police booked Yerpude.

    The eldest of the three siblings informed about it to Child Line. Based on that information, Child Line volunteers and district child welfare officer Mushtaque Pathan reached the house of Yerpude and enquired from her about the children.
