Seven minor girls fled from a government-funded shelter home in Mokama here in the early hours of Saturday after cutting a window grille, an official said.
The government-owned shelter home run by Nazareth hospital society, he said.
“Seven girls fled from the shelter home located at Mokama between 3 am and 3:30 am today. They were under treatment for their violent behavior,” Social Welfare Department Director Raj Kumar told PTI.
About reports that five of the seven girls had been brought from the Muzaffarpur shelter home which used to be run by an NGO of Brajesh Thakur, the prime accused in the alleged rape and sexual abuse of 34 the minor inmates there, Kumar said, “I don’t know exactly… I will be in a position to say anything on this after reaching the spot (shelter home).”
