The Muzaffarpur shelter home case where more than 34 girls were allegedly sexually abused has recently come to light. The medical reports had earlier indicated that 29 out of 44 girls living at the shelter homes had been raped and molested for several weeks. Soon after the reports were out the case was handed over to the CBI. in the recent revelation, the state funded NGO, allegedly resulted in abortions and death of at least one girl. The CBI inquiry had further informed how these shelter homes were able to function for so long with no accountability, either in their finances or the welfare of the inmates. These girls in this destitute home used to cut themselves i order to avoid sexual abused.The most worrying part is that the state has a child welfare committee of which the chairperson is now among the accused. Shelter homes are meant to provide safe security for children and women who have been abandoned or have no family support. But when those who are entrusted with the protection turn into predator, its high time the state should seriously take a strict action to ensure that this does not happen again.
