Muzaffarpur shelter home survivor gang raped in a moving car, three of the four accused arrested

Though the authenticity of the audio clip is being ascertained by the police, the accused is heard mentioning that the victim was allegedly raped in a moving Scorpio car. 

In a horrific incident, Muzaffarpur shelter home survivor, who was reunited with her family after a sex scandal broke out in May 2018, was reportedly kidnapped and gang raped in a moving car by four members of the same family on the Bettiah-Pakhnaha road in West Champaran district on Friday night. The girl has identified two of the perpetrators.

Now, an audio clip with the accused’s confession has emerged where the younger of the two brothers alleged to be involved in the heinous crime is heard narrating the entire incident to someone. He is heard talking about the involvement of five people including himself. However, he denied his elder brother’s involvement in the case.

Though the authenticity of the audio clip is being ascertained by the police, the accused is heard mentioning that the victim was allegedly raped in a moving Scorpio car.

Muzaffarpur shelter home had hit the headlines in June 2018 after a social audit report highlighted that over 42 girls were allegedly mentally and physically abused at a government-aided home, run by Brajesh Thakur.

According to reports, the victim was on her way to her sister-in-law’s house at Kotwali Chowk when four people came in a car and forcibly pulled her into the moving vehicle. The victim confirmed that though all the four accused had their faces covered the victim managed to unmask two of them in the tussle and identify them.

The victim said that the accused first gang-raped her in the moving vehicle and then once again repeated the heinous crime near the Santghat canal after which they brought her back to her locality and dumped her out of the car and fled. The accused had threatened the victim with dire consequences if she went to the police.

Following the complaint, an FIR has been registered against the four accused, Akash Kumar, Raj Kumar, Dinanath Kumar and Kundan Kumar, and investigations have begun. Three of the four accused are arrested and efforts to arrest the fourth one are on. Initial investigation suggest that the victim is a minor and knew her perpetrators.

Bettiah town police station SHO Shashi Bhushan Thakur said that the woman was admitted in the ICU ward of the government medical college on Saturday evening and a medical examination was conducted by a team of doctors on Sunday, he said. The girl’s condition is said to be critical.

According to police, the victim was found on the Muzaffarpur Railway Station in May 2018, following which she was kept in the shelter home for seven days. After that, she was shifted to Mokama where she stayed for one-and-a-half months. In July 2018 she was reunited with her family.

Note: This report earlier suggested that the victim was reunited with her family from the shelter home following a court order. However, with police clarification, the report has been updated and new information has been added.
