A day after a Bihar shelter came in national spotlight over rape and torture of at least 29 girls and alleged murder of a minor, more chilling details have emerged from the horror home. The perpetrators forced few of the girls, aged between seven and 17, at Balika Grih in Muzaffarpur district to go for abortion, sources privy to the investigation told DNA.

German sociologist Max Weber has argued that changes in religion drive economic productivity.
