Muzaffarpur horror: Five girls died in shelter home... not two
Patna: The Central Bureau of Investigation has discovered that five minor girls, and not two as reported earlier, died in a shelter home in Bihar's Muzaffarpur district.
Their post-mortems were conducted at a government hospital, police said on Monday.
The CBI, probing the alleged rape of 34 girls at the shelter home, on Sunday searched documents at Shri Krishna Medical College and Hospital and found that the post-mortems of five girls of the shelter home were conducted there.
According to the hospital register, the post-mortems of two girls were conducted in 2013, two in 2015 and one in 2017.
The CBI officials are now trying to find out as to whom the bodies of the girls were handed over after their autopsies and also whether cases were registered in the matter.
"A team of CBI officials is likely to interrogate some hospital doctors soon to collect more details about the case," a district police officer said.
The CBI had earlier found human bones at a cremation ground on October 4 following a tip-off. It had also carried out an extensive excavation at the shelter home premises on suspicion that some inmates might have been killed and buried there, but could not recover anything from there.
