Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said a CBI probe will be ordered into the rape of over 40 minor girls in Bihar’s shelter home once the Centre receives the State’s request.

Calling the incident in a government-run shelter home in Muzzafarpur “a serious matter”, Mr. Singh set the criteria for ordering a Central Bureau of Investigation probe.

The Home Minister was responding to a demand made by Supaul’s Congress MP Ranjeet Ranjan during the Zero Hour in the Lok Sabha.

Mr. Ranjan said the incident had brought shame to the country. The Congress MP also gave the example of a Swiss Squash player, who refused to participate in the World Junior Squash Championship in Chennai.
