Patna, Mar 12 (UNI) Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today assured the Assembly of taking lawful action with regard to the alleged prostitution in the women remand home.
Intervening into the noisy scenes created by the RJD members following rejection of their Adjournment Motion, Mr Kumar said he had gone through the related report published in a local newspaper, adding that the recorded version of the victims would be taken into consideration.
Mr Kumar said he would discuss the matter with the concerned authorities to take appropriate action against the guilty persons.
