Investigating officer Neha Aggarwal told the news agency, “A case of molestation has been registered against the accused after two girls complained of molestation by the warden’s husband. Questioning is underway.”
This case is reminiscent of the Muzaffarpur shelter home case where scores of girls were sexually abused by the manager and other men who were brought in.
In a medical examination, sexual abuse of 34 out of 42 residents was confirmed.
An FIR was lodged against 12 people on May 31, 2018. Brajesh Thakur, the man who ran the state-funded NGO, had several other similar organisations and a Hindi newspaper, was politically well connected and the Nitish Kumar government faced flak because of the delay in investigation aran several other NGOs and a Hindi newspaper called ‘Pratah Kamal’.
Eventually, the Supreme Court, in February, transferred the trial from Bihar’s Patna to the national capital’s Saket POCSO Court. Further, the top court ordered the Delhi court to commence the trial within two weeks and ordered it to conclude the proceeding in six months time.
Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi also wanted to know why the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officer probing the case, was transferred despite the SC’s order against it. “Was the Cabinet committee which transferred him informed of Supreme Court embargo?” he asked, saying it amounted to a violation of its order while rapping the investigating agency for the same.
“Enough is enough. We will ask Bihar Chief Secretary to appear before us. Get someone here who is conversed to what is happening in the state. You can’t let your officers treat unfortunate children like this. Spare the children,” the CJI said.
