Deoria, Aug 8: A two-member team from the state government investigation team which has been looking into the Deoria shelter home horror case, has finally submitted its report to UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. However, there are several questions which have been left unanswered, the most prominent being the one whether sexual assault has been confirmed. Moreover, it isn’t clear as what more action will be taken by the UP government. Also Read - After Tamil Nadu & Madhya Pradesh, UP to Now Provide Free Corona Vaccine to All Its Residents
Another pertinent question is that when the license of the Maa Vindhyavasini Mahila and Balika Sanrakshan NGO was put on hold by the state government last year, after a statewide CBI probe found financial irregularities, how was it still running the NGO. That’s not it, nearly 10 days ago, the local police and administration had a tiff with accused Girija Tripathi and her husband – who ran the shelter – when they went to inspect it. An FIR was filed then too but no action was taken. Also Read - Good News For Liquor Lovers in UP: They Can Now Buy Alcohol From 10 AM to 10 PM
Also, the 18 other missing girls are still missing even two days after the police raid. As per police, the list of 42 girls which was found, was a floating list and that girls come and leave from shelter homes like these. Reportedly, the list of 42 girls was last updated on July 31 and the police are looking to account for each of the 18 girls missing.

The police also said they had no idea that sexual abuse was going on in the shelter home. Meanwhile, the police is also looking into whether the NGO had just put the names of girls to increase the number and get more private funding. All these questions are yet unanswered and pose bigger questions.
As for now, the UP government is studying the report which has been submitted to them on Tuesday. According to a state minister, “There is a strong possibility of sexual abuse and also criminal connivance at the local level.”
