Patna women’s shelter home: Even before the accused involved in Muzaffarpur shelter home rapes case could be identified and punished, two girls from a state-run shelter home in Patna, Bihar were brought dead to the Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) on Saturday night. The authorities of the shelter home had brought the dead bodies to the hospital hours after the local police had raided the premises of the shelter home and later arrested a man for luring the girls from the shelter home to escape with him. As per reports, the shelter home in Patna that was being run by Social Welfare Department in Patna’s Nepali Nagar area had concealed the deaths of the two girls while the police were conducting raids.
Commenting about the condition of the two girls, the doctor said that they were brought dead on Saturday evening by the NGO authorities. The reason for their death is still said to be investigated. Following the death of two girls, a team of police personnel was rushed to the shelter home on Sunday morning. Further disclosing the matter, the investigating police officer said that special teams have been formed to nab the absconding owner of the shelter home, Chirantan Kumar. The police are currently questioning Renuka, another owner, from the shelter home in Patna.

As per a report by Dainik Jagran, authorities have performed the last rites for one deceased while police will get a second-postmortem done for the second deceased.
