Three beggars sent to rehabilitation centre

As part of a rescue and rehabilitation operation, Hubballi Police have collected three persons found begging on trains.

The Railway Police Station was getting several complaints from passengers stating that beggars were creating a nuisance on trains.

Some would even claim to clean the bogies, using their shirt.

A team headed by Sub-Inspector of Police Shivanand Arenad found the beggars on trains.

It seemed as if it had become a profession for some. Some were from nearby towns and others were migrants. They were brought to the police station. A haircut and bath were arranged for them. They were then sent to the beggars rehabilitation centre in Machche near Belagavi.
