NHRC asks Bihar DGP for report on class 7 girl's kidnapping case

NHRC issued a notice to director general of police (Bihar) in connection with an abduction case of a class 7 student. It has asked him to submit a report about the progress in the investigation.

Navruna Chakrawarti was kidnapped on September 19 from Muzaffarpur district in Bihar but the investigating agency has not got any breakthrough in the case yet.

A Delhi University law student Abhishek Ranjan on behalf of 13-year-old Navruna’s parents — Atulya Chakravarti and Maitri Chakrawarti — had approached the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on October 30. 

In response to the complaint, the commission last week issued an order to Bihar’s DGP asking for a report on the case within six weeks. If the report is not submitted within the stipulated time, it will take action against the officer concerned.

Navruna Chakarwarti was kidnapped in the middle of the night from her home on September 18. The abductors entered into her house by cutting the window grill of her room and kidnapped her.

Earlier, police refused to take cognisance of the matter saying it was a case of elopement as the family members did not receive any ransom calls.

But when her father tried to commit suicide by consuming poison, police registered a case and started investigation into the matter.

Meanwhile, friends and schoolmates of the girl started a campaign on Facebook and blogspot for justice and demanded that police should trace her.

Navruna’s classmates also protested outside the Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar’s party office in Patna.
