New Delhi [India], April 26 (ANI): Union Minister of State, Home Affairs, Hansraj Ahir on Friday wrote to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis requesting a CBI enquiry into the alleged “multiple cases of rape of minor tribal girls residing in a tribal hostel run by Infant Jesus Education Society" in Chandrapur, Maharashtra.
The minister requested the Chief Minister to "enquire" about the delay in registration of FIR in the case.
Ahir in his letter said that these girls were allegedly drugged and sexually abused by staff of tribal school/hostel run by the said society.
Requesting the CM to consider recommending a CBI enquiry in the case, Ahir said, "There is a lot of dissatisfaction among the people of my constituency and people are clamouring for CBI enquiry in the case. Several media clippings are enclosed for your perusal."
"It has also been brought to my notice that there was undue delay in registering FIR in the case and no action was taken for a week from April 6 to April 12," Ahir complained in the letter. (ANI)
