He knowingly violated CARA guideline and JJ Act: Journalist who accused filmmaker Vinod Kapri of faking an adoption story for self promotion

CARA CEO had tweeted back on June 16 itself that the story of the couple having 'adopted' the infant child was fake and that after due legal procedure the child will be rehabilitated to the couples already registered with CARA.

Journalist Abhishek Upadhyay who had accused filmmaker Vinod Kapri of faking an adoption story for self-promotion has now claimed that Kapri violated the CARA (Central Adoption Resource Authority) guidelines and the Juvenile Justice Act (JJ Act) while tweeting the updates about the girl child. He shared a tweet of CEO of CARA, the central adoption agency, who had tweeted back on June 16 itself that the story of Kapri having ‘adopted’ the child is fake.

CARA CEO’s tweet from June 16 had linked a storypick story which wrote about Kapri and his wife Sakshi Joshi of having adopted the girl child. The link was also shared by the couple on their social media.

CARA CEO had clarified that this was a false story and the child is currently named ‘Ganga’ (and not Pihu as Kapri tweeted) and will be placed in State Government’s Adoption Agency. She will be rehabilitated through a legal process.

The Ministry of WCD had also tweeted on June 15 that the child has been placed in the hospital for interim care.

In fact, responding to Kapri’s tweet, the CARA CEO had tweeted that the child has been registered with CARA and will be rehabilitated through adoption with an already registered couples who are already on the waiting list after the Child Welfare Committee declares the child legally free for adoption.

On June 16, CARA CEO even warned Sakshi, Kapri’s wife to refrain from posting pictures of the child as it would be in violation of the JJ Act.

However, despite the warning, the couple continued to post pictures of the child. Kapri even put up the picture of the child as his display picture.

Later, after being pointed out by social media users that the couple has been violating CARA guidelines and even JJ Act despite the warning from CARA CEO, Kapri started deleting his tweets. He said their only concern is the health of the child and that they will continue the fight to get ‘that’ little baby.

Despite CARA guidelines that the child will be rehabilitated through adoption with an already registered couples who are already on the waiting list and Kapri and his wife keep on insisting on adopting that particular child out of turn.

On Sunday, journalist Abhishek Upadhyay had accused filmmaker Vinod Kapri of having used the tragedy of a newborn to promote himself and his movie ‘Pihu’ which was supposedly set to release on Netflix in the following days.

A few weeks back, an emotional story of a journalist couple ‘adopting’ a baby rescued from a garbage dump in Nagaur, Rajasthan made rounds on social media evoking strong sentiment amongst the social media users. A journalist couple, Vinod Kapri and Sakshi Joshi, had warmed everyone’s hearts after they had announced that they would be adopting a baby girl found abandoned near a garbage mound in Rajasthan’s Nagaur area.

In a series of tweets, Upadhyay claimed that Kapri had planted stories in Indian as well as international media houses that he had already adopted the newborn child. However, Nagaur administration has clarified that the formalities are yet to start and a committee will take a decision on who will be the adoptive parents of the child.
