In yet another tragic incident 42 girls were allegedly raped while one of them was mercilessly beaten to death at a shelter home in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur.
As per the latest reports, a disagreement with some of the staff members from the stay home has ended tragically in the death of the minor.
Following the report of her death, who was buried in the shelter home premises, police have initiated a probe and started digging in and around the place.
However the excavation work ended as no body could be found.
The matter came to light after a social audit report of the TISS (Tata Institute of Social Sciences) claimed that 42 girl inmates of the Muzaffarpur Balika Grih had allegedly been sexually assaulted. The inmates were allegedly beaten up or drugged before being sexually abused.
One of the victims alleged that those who resisted rape were killed. A girl was beaten up and killed and her body was buried on the stay home premises, she had alleged. The court ordered excavation to exhume her body in presence of a magistrate.
“On court’s permission, the excavation was carried out at the stay home run by NGO Seva Sankalp and Vikas Samiti on Monday with the help of sniffer dogs but nothing was found.
The girl inmates were shifted from Muzaffarpur to other homes, while medical tests were carried out to ascertain rape.
At least 16 of the 21 medical reports submitted to the officials concerned had confirmed rape, while other reports are yet to come,” said sources, adding some other girls had disappeared in the past and the matter was under investigation.
At least 30 traumatised rape survivors were under medical observation at various hospitals. Madhepura MP Papu Yadav had demanded a CBI probe into the incident.
