The Bihar Police revealed the identity of a rape victim on social media causing a major embarrassment to the force and the Nitish Kumar government.

The police released the name and address of the rape victim on the official Facebook page of the police force.

The Bihar government has said the matter will be investigated and all those responsible will be punished.

Meanwhile, the political parties are up in arms against the police for the lapse.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) attacked the police accusing them of jeopardising the probe into the case. "The procedure which should have been followed wasn't followed. Now it will affect the evidence collection. Action should be taken against all police officers who revealed her identity," BJP leader Nitin Navin said.

Janata Dal United (JDU), too, demanded action against those who caused the blunder. "Such cases are sensitive and call for great caution. It's a matter of investigation as to how it was leaked. Those responsible will pe punished," JDU leader Shyam Razak said.
