The case was revealed after Mumbai-based Tata Institute of Social Sciences conducted a survey and concluded that 34 girls at the state-run Muzaffarpur shelter home were raped by staff. Meanwhile, Parliamentary Affairs minister Ananth Kumar has informed that key bills including the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Bill, 2018 and The Banning of Unregulated Deposit Schemes Bill, 2018 are scheduled to come up for consideration and subsequent passage in the Lok Sabha today.
