RJD to protest at Jantar Mantar on Aug 4 over Muzaffarpur shelter home case
Patna, Aug 2: Tejashwi Yadav on Thursday said that the RJD will hold protest at several parts of the country, including Jantar Mantar in New Delhi, on August 4 over the rape of over 30 girls at a state-run shelter home in Bihar's Muzaffarpur.
"RJD will hold a strike in Bihar and across the country, including at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi, on 4th August to seek answers from CM Nitish Kumar on Muzaffarpur shelter home case and several other crimes in the state," Tejashwi told ANI.
Earlier today, the Supreme Court took suo moto cognizance of Muzaffarpur shelter home case. The Apex Court issued a notice to Bihar Government and Centre, and sought a detailed reply from them.
The apex court took suo moto cognizance a day after the CBI decided to conduct an exhaustive forensic examination of the Muzzafarpur shelter home where minor girls were allegedly raped by officials of the centre.
A team from CFSL will soon be sent to Muzzafarpur to reconstruct crime scenes and collect forensic samples from the centre. The statements of the victims will be used to reconstruct the crime scene and develop a timeline which will be used to prosecute the accused, according to PTI.
