PATNA: At least seven girls, including five witnesses in the Muzaffarpur care home sex scandal, have mysteriously gone missing from a child care home in Bihar.
All these girls who were lodged at Mokama care home in Patna district found missing early Saturday morning, raising a big question mark over the prevailing state of affairs.
“The girls escaped after cutting an iron window grille of a government-funded shelter home in Mokama,” an unnamed police official told news agency IANS today.
Another senior official said the girls who “escaped” were under treatment for their violent behavior.
“Seven girls escaped from the shelter home located at Mokama between 3 am and 3.30 am today. They were under treatment for their violent behavior,” social welfare department’s director Raj Kumar told news agency PTI.
According to media reports, five of the seven girls, who “fled” had been brought from Muzaffarpur shelter home after the sex scandal surfaced.
The incident has come at a time when the sex scandal case trial has been shifted to Delhi from Muzaffarpur.
The case is currently being probed by the CBI under the supervision of the Supreme Court which recently asked the investigating agency to investigate all the cases related to care home.
According to the NDTV, seven accused — including key aides and close relatives of Brajesh Thakur –were supposed to be presented before the Delhi court today. The CBI has been investigating the case since July last year.
The opposition parties alleged the incident could be part of the large conspiracy to save the main culprit Brajesh Thakur.
