LUCKNOW: The chief minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday said the state government has decided to hand over the alleged sexual assault case of Deoria shelter home to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to investigate into the matter, two days after 24 girls were rescued on saturday.
Addressing a press conference, chief minister Yogi Adityanath said a two-member committee, constituted by the state government to probe the working of the shelter home, submitted its report on Tuesday.
He also said that in the entire matter district administration not acted on time. CBI had said in 2015-16 there were financial irregularities here, when we came to power in 2017 we ordered its closure. District administration did not act on time, so DM was transferred and today we have decided to chargesheet him,” Adityanath said.
Role of cops in the entire matter will also be investigated, CM informed. Like the Muzaffarpur shelter home case in Bihar, in Deoria, on Sunday, 24 girls were freed from the shelter home after one of them informed the cops that they were being sexually abused.
