JAP's women wing demanded CBI probe in Muzaffarpur shelter home scandal
The Jan Adhikar Mahila Parishad in a memorandum to Governor Satya Pal Malik demanded that the CBI probe is either monitored by Supreme Court or Bihar High Court.
The women's wing of Bihar-based JAP-Loktantrik party today demanded a court-monitored CBI probe into the Muzaffarpur shelter home scandal and demanded the resignation the Bihar social welfare minister.
The Parishad members took out a march to the Raj Bhavan to protest against the scandal and handed over a memorandum to the governor's ADC Himanshu Tiwari containing their demands.
The police stopped the march at a distance from the Rajbhavan and JAP members alleged that the force personnel misbehaved with them.
Following this, the protesters, especially women shouted anti-government slogans. Lok Sabha MP Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav, who heads the JAP-Loktantrik party, said that no one is safe in the state and demanded a probe into the functioning of all shelter homes of the state in order to expose flesh trade and those involved behind the "racket" being run from them.
The shelter homes in the state have turned into centers of sexual exploitation and rape for its inmates, he said adding that wrongdoers got government's patronage as girls from the homes were being "supplied" to politicians and officials.
