New Delhi, August 7: The Deoria shelter home assault horror along with the Muzaffarpur shelter home rape case have shaken the nation. The issue rocked Parliament on Tuesday with Home Minister Rajnath Singh making a statement on Deoria case in Lok Sabha. However, when Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Hema Malini was asked to react on the issue, all she said was, "It happened, bad. What to do now?"

Rajnath Singh today made a statement in Lok Sabha on the case and praised the Yogi Adityanath government for taking "prompt action." He also assured a high-level inquiry into the case.

"Such incidents happening in Bihar and Deoria are being investigated with full force and we will ensure that such acts are not repeated in future," Singh said. He also added that action has been taken against officials involved in the Deoria shelter home case."The culprits, in this case, will not be spared," he said amid uproar by the Opposition.

The incident came to light after a girl escaped from the shelter home and informed the police how they were all treated like servants. Superintendent of Police Rohan P Kanay said, "When the order to close this institution was made, our people went there and the organisation's director misbehaved with our team. Today, after a girl escaped from there, we got to the reality of that place. While 24 girls have been rescued, a search is underway for 15 others.

The Muzaffarpur Shelter Home case, where at least 34 minor girls have been raped and abused, came to light when a team of Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) submitted a report based on its findings, after it visited the shelter house.
