The inspection is a part of a statewide crackdown at the back of recent exposes in the shelter homes of Deoria and Muzaffarpur in Bihar.
Earlier on Friday, the police raided a shelter home in Ghazipur and arrested three after it was found to be running illegally.
Prior to this, district magistrate Shambhu Kumar visited two women’s shelter homes run by NGOs in Pratapgarh, where he found 26 women were missing.
