The Supreme Court on Thursday ordered eight girls, who are victims of sexual assault in the Muzaffarpur shelter home case, to be restored to their families.

A bench headed by Justice N.V. Ramana also ordered the Bihar government to process the compensation/ entitlement as per the process, and also that the government should take care of the overall aid for the victims -- medical, educational, financial and development.

The apex court order comes after the Tata Institute for Social Sciences (TISS) project 'Koshish' submitted a report on the restoration of the girls to their families. A total of 44 girls were victims in the shelter home abuse case, which is currently being probed by the CBI.
