Patna (Bihar) [India], July 23 (ANI): A dog squad has been roped in for investigation in Muzaffarpur shelter home rape case, following a statement from one of the victims that a girl was beaten to death and buried in the premises after a disagreement with staff members.
Earlier in the day, one of the victims had revealed her ordeal and told interrogators that a girl was allegedly killed and buried underground in the premises of the home.
The digging had begun earlier in the day to exhume the body of the victim.
The excavation was carried out in the presence of Executive Magistrate (Eastern) Priya Rani Gupta and senior police officials.
Sexual exploitation of more than 40 girls at a Muzaffarpur shelter home was uncovered more than a month ago during its audit by a Mumbai-based social science institute.
Police have arrested a total of ten people so far, including some government officials.
On a related note, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) had earlier demanded an inquiry by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the matter, alleging that the owner of the home is a close aide of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
Meanwhile, all the girls of the shelter home have been shifted to other places in the state for their safety. (ANI)
