Madhya Pradesh child rights protection commission (MPCRPC) member Brijesh Chouhan said, “The bus driver had committed sexually abused the child more than once. We are trying to find out if there are any more victims of sexual abuse as the clothes of two other girls were also changed on different days in the bus. The driver, teacher, Aaya (Didi) also knew about this. This disclosure has been made by the MP Children's Commission.” He further said that during interrogation, the commission came to know that the DBR card of the CCTV installed in the bus in which the rape took place was lost and destroyed to suppress the matter.
