On Tuesday the Home Minister Rajnath Singh expressed concern regarding the reports of girls being sexually abused in Bihar shelter homes and asserted that the Centre would consider a CBI enquiry once the State government makes a request.

Mr. Singh was responding to the Congress member Ranjeet Ranjan demand for a CBI enquiry under court supervision into the matter, in the Lok Sabha.
