NHRC summons Bihar Police chief in missing girl case

Patna, March 31 (IANS) The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has summoned the Bihar Police chief to appear before it for failing to submit a report on a minor girl missing since Sep 18 last year.

The NHRC has asked Director General of Police Abhyanand to appear before it personally at its office in New Delhi May 3.

“Despite giving sufficient time and opportunity, the requisite report has not been received. In these circumstances, let director general of police, Bihar, personally appear before the commission on May 3 along with the requisite report,” the commission said.

The 13-year-old girl was abducted from her house in Muzaffarpur district Sep 18. However, the state police have failed to make any breakthrough in the case till date.

In October last year, Abhisek Ranjan, a Delhi University law student, had filed a complaint with the NHRC in this regard, and the commission had directed Bihar Police to submit a report on the case by Dec 6.

According to officials in the state home department, despite two reminders sent subsequently to Bihar Police, the commission did not get any response on the incident.

Early this year, the investigation was handed over to the crime investigation department (CID) of Bihar Police.

Atulya Chakravorty, father of the girl, has alleged that his daughter was abducted by land mafia as he refused to give up a piece of prime land in Muzaffarpur.

A skeleton was found from a drain near Chakravorty’s house. But despite a court order, Chakravorty and his wife refused to give their blood samples for a DNA test, saying the skeleton was not their daughter’s.
