Patna, Feb 27: After four days of 'stage managed' escape of seven inmates of Mokama shelter home in Patna district, Special Investigation Team (SIT) with the assistance of railway police found the 7th missing inmate, one of the prime witnesses in Muzaffarpur`s short stay home sexual exploitation case near Madhubani railway station late last night.

Patna senior police superintendent Garima Malik said that the 7th missing inmate of Mokama shelter home was recovered near Madhubani railway station. She said that Madhubani government railway police (GRP) extended full support to SIT in finding the missing girl. Three youths from Mokama and adjoining areas were detained from the spot for questioning, she added.

Six out of seven inmates who were 'made to flee' from Mokama shelter home on February 23 were found in Darbhanga district same day.
All six girls were recovered from the house of one of the inmates under Shakatpur police station area in Darbhanga district. Out of seven girls who had gone missing from Mokama shelter home in Patna
district in the wee hours on February 23, four of them were shifted there from infamous Muzaffarpur’s short stay home.

Mokama`s shelter home is being run by Nazareth Hospital`s nuns and no outsider is allowed to enter into it. A missing case was registered in this connection. The latest incident of escape from Bihar`s short stay homes assumes special significance as this time it involves four girls from Muzaffarpur`s short stay home which was closed after sexual exploitation of its inmates was revealed in Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) Mumbai`s social audit report.

Central Bureau of Investigation is probing the case even as Supreme Court is monitoring the investigation. UNI
