Man quizzed for bringing 12 kids to Goa

PANAJI: The women's police station, PANAJI , has initiated an inquiry against a Brazilian , who runs an unregistered, Mumbai-based NGO , for bringing 12 children into the state from Mumbai a month ago. The children were not found with him when the police raided his residence. As per documents recovered during the raid, most of the children hail from Maharashtra.
Police said the state commission for children received a tip-off that many children had been residing with a foreigner at Porvorim. North Goa SP Umesh Gaonkar , said the women's police station is questioning the Brazilian national for bringing the children to Goa. He is believed to have stated that he got the children's school admission done in Goa at the cost of 5 lakh. As he is unemployed, police are now ascertaining his source of income.
Police said the NGO was not registered under the Juvenile Justice Act, nor were the children produced before the child welfare committee at Mumbai. The NGO started its activities in 2008. No case has been registered in the matter so far.
