Janta Dal (United) today asserted that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar would not resign and said it was ready for a Supreme Court-monitored probe into the Muzaffarpur shelter home rape case.

Briefing media here today, JD(U) leader K C Tyagi criticised the opposition leaders for attending the RJD-organised protest in the case in the national capital yesterday. He alleged that opposition parties are trying to gain political mileage from the unfortunate and shameful incident.

He said, the Bihar government acted against the accused swiftly and, as per the wish of RJD and other opposition parties, it sought a CBI probe into the incident.

Meanwhile Bihar government today suspended Assistant Director of Muzaffarpur Child Protection Unit, Divesh Kumar Sharma in the wake of alleged sexual exploitation of 34 minor girls at a state-funded shelter home.

According to sources, the decision was taken as the official did not take any action at an appropriate time to stop the incidents from happening.

The state government has also suspended Assistant Directors of Child protection Unit of five other districts, Madhubani, Bhagalpur, Munger, Bhojpur and Araria for dereliction of their duties.

The sources also said, several officials of Social Welfare, Information and Public Relations and Health departments are under the scanner of the CBI for their alleged roles in sexual exploitation.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has launched a scheme which promises to provide Rs 54,100 from the birth of a girl child till she graduates. He launched the ‘Mukhyamantri Kanya Utthan Yojana’ in Patna on Friday and expressed his government’s resolve for empowerment of women.
