The Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal-United government has been facing the Opposition heat over a sudden spurt in crime against girls and women in the state. The Muzaffarpur shelter home sex scandal had recently set a face-off between the RJD-led Opposition and the Nitish Kumar government in Bihar over the alleged sexual exploitation of 34 minor inmates for several years at the now-blacklisted shelter home.
