Mumbai: The Bombay high court has suggested the state to develop a model plan for constant governance and supervision of shelter homes for children in the state. The division bench of Justice N.H. Patil and Justice G S Kulkarni has said that the government could also consult social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muuruganantham for supply of sanitary pads for girls staying in these homes.

The bench put forward these suggestions while hearing a Public Interest Litigation filed by a city resident, Sangeeta Punekar, raising the issue of poor condition of a children’s shelter home in suburban Mankhurd. The court said prima facie, the Mankhurd shelter home’s condition was not up to the mark.
