Muzaffarpur shelter rape case: SC stays Patna HC order to constitute a fresh CBI probe team

The Supreme Court today stayed a Patna High Court order directing CBI special director to monitor the progress of the investigation into Muzaffarpur shelter home case.

The Patna HC had on August 29 ordered that the Special Director of CBI to set up a fresh team of investigators to investigate into the Muzaffarpur shelter home case, wherein incidents of alleged rape and sexual assault of women inmates had come to light following the social audit report from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS).

The SC bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta opined that changing the existing CBI team at this stage will be “detrimental to the ongoing probe”.

There is no allegation made against the team conducting investigation. We don’t see any reason why the existing CBI team probing the Muzaffarpur shelter home case, should be changed at this stage”, the bench said.

The court then asked the existing probe agency to place before it the two status reports of the probe in Muzaffarpur case, which were filed earlier before the Patna HC and listed the matter for further hearing on September 20.
