7th missing Muzzafarpur shelter home girl found

PATNA: After discovering six missing women, the police successfully also found the 7th woman, who is among the top witnesses in the infamous Muzaffarpur safe haven home rape case from Madhubani on Tuesday night time.

"After sincere efforts by the SIT constituted to investigate the Mokama Shelter Home case, the seventh girl was recovered last night (26-27/2/19) from Madhubani," mentioned police in its press statement.

"It is to be noted that circumstances of the girl's escape are yet to be fully established. It is early to say if girls escaped on their own or received outside help," the police added.

"No evidence about the involvement of the NGO Nazareth Academy has surfaced so far. The SIT will soon complete the investigation and come out with all details," it further mentioned.

Six of the minor women have been present in Gangauli village beneath the Sakatpur police station area on February 24.

Seven women, including five, who have been abused on the Muzaffarpur safe haven home remaining year, escaped from the Mokama safe haven home on Friday night time.

It is worth citing that five women have been shifted to Nazareth Hospital Society from Seva Sankalp Evam Vikas Samiti, Muzaffarpur, in August remaining year after their ordeal of sexual abuse was highlighted in the audit document of Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS).

More than 40 minor women have been allegedly sexually assaulted over a time frame in the safe haven home which was run by Brijesh Thakur's state-funded non-governmental organisation (NGO).

Subsequently, the NGO was blacklisted and the women have been shifted to other safe haven homes in Patna and Madhubani.
