Lucknow:The Uttar Pradesh government has recommended probe by Central Bureau of Investigation in the Deoria shelter home scandal.

UP CM Yogi Adityanath said, while speaking to media on Tuesday, termed the incident unfortunate. “We are recommending probe by CBI into the case of Deoria shelter home. Our government had ordered closure of this shelter home in 2017. But the administration failed in compliance of the orders.”

The chief minister also informed that the District Magistrate is being chargesheeted, since there was ‘laxity’ on his part. An SIT is also being constituted to ensure fair probe in this case of sexual abuse of girls in shelter home. Role of police is also being investigated under the ADG Gorakhpur.

The horrors of shelter home came to light on Sunday when a 10-year-old inmate managed to escape from the place and informed the police about the ‘dubious activities’ happening there.
