Darbhanga Zonal Inspector General, Pankaj Darar said, “Girls used to go to a playground nearby, where some boys used to write obscene words on walls. This was happening for the past four days. Yesterday they asked a boy Mohan to stop doing that. Upon hearing this, Mohan, his mother and some other women beat them up. 14 children are still at the hospital. People involved have been identified and an FIR has been registered.”

He further assured that culprits will be arrested soon.

Speaking on the matter, Triveniganj Sub-Divisional Magistrate said, “The girls are admitted to hospital. Accused will be arrested soon.”

Meanwhile, Supaul Member of Parliament (MP), Ranjeet Ranjan said, “I reached the spot and inquired why was the FIR not lodged. Today FIR was filed against only six to seven people. Children are scared, and there should be an internal scared. This harassment of the girls has been happening for long, why did it take so long?
