Muzaffarpur rape: Ravana ruling Bihar, says Tejashwi

ANI  |  Patna (Bihar) 

The Nitish Kumar government in Bihar once again came under fierce attack from Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav following alleged incidents of rape and torture in a shelter home in Muzaffarpur.

Alluding to the characters of the epic Mahabharata, Tejashwi said, "We are staring at statelessness in Bihar. Women are getting abducted akin to what Ravana did to Sita. Girls are getting raped, abducted. The state is now being ruled by Ravana," he said.

Pointing out at the illegal activities carried out at a shelter home, he said, "Several drugs and things related to abortion were being used at the shelter home. Still, the main suspect Brajesh Thakur is being protected by the government. When will he be arrested? Till when minor girls will be raped in the state?".

As many as 34 girls were allegedly tortured, raped and starved by administrators of the shelter home as well as visitors.
