A chargesheet has also been filed in the JMFC Third Court against the Deputy Director of District Women and Child Welfare Department Shakuntala and field workers Nusrut and Lakshmikanthamma for forcible entry and theft.

This case is presently before the High Court. The other file is that of the alleged detention of a one and a half year old orphan child by the Vajradehi seer of Gurupur in his mutt in 2008.

CWC in its written complaint had said even files pertaining to the sale of a new born child named Skanda and another case pertaining to the Nirmala adoption centre in Ullal, were stolen.
