A private hostel

being run illegally for schoolgirls were closed down by the

East Singhbhum district administration.

The district Deputy Commissioner Amit Kumar ordered to

close the private Sukanya Hostel situated in Parsudih area

with immediate effect, an official release said.

The hostel attached to a school came into the news

last month after a relative of its operator tried to rape an

inmate who was a minor. The accused was arrested.

Kumar also directed police to probe whether the

operator was also involved in the incident.

Taking cognizance of the incident, the administration

has ordered an investigation which revealed that the hostel

was being run without any valid document.
