The top court slamming Bihar government and said if found fault over registering FIR, court will direct orer againt the government. 'if we find that there were offences under section 377 IPC and POCSO Act and you did not register FIR, we will pass an order against the government,' said Supreme Court.

Supreme Court asked, “What are you doing?. It further added, “ It’s shameful, If the child is sodomised you say it’s nothing? How can you do this? It’s inhuman. We were told that matter will be looked with great seriousness, this is seriousness? Every time I read this file it’s tragic.”

The Supreme Court was hearing a separate case of multiple rapes at a shelter home run by state government, in Muzaffarpur, Bihar when it found the Bihar government's explanation on sodomy cases lacking in merit.
