Patna: Amid hue and cry being raised alleging shoddy probe in the Navruna missing case, the state government on Thursday blamed the girl's parents for not cooperating in investigation by refusing to give blood for DNA test on a skeleton of a girl recovered from near their house in Muzaffarpur.

"The missing girl Navruna Chakravorty's parents (Amulya and Maitri) have refused to give blood to match with that of a skeleton of a girl appearing to be nearly identical to the missing girl.....What could police or any other agency do if the parents' don't cooperate in probe of the case?" Minister In-charge of Home Department Vijay Kumar Chaudhary said in the Legislative Assembly.

The parents' stand to refuse giving blood sample to police for matching with the skeleton of a girl was baffling to say the least, he said and urged the aggrieved Chakravortis to cooperate with the investigation.

Chaudhary did not agree with the demand by Navruna's parents and Leader of Opposition in the legislative assembly Abdul Bari Siddique for a CBI probe in the missing girl case saying that there was a standard process of investigation by all agencies.

The minister described as selective Navruna's parents' remarks expressing lack of faith in the Muzaffarpur police and state agencies to probe the matter to logical conclusion.

Demanding a CBI probe he said that they had no problem in lodging a case at the local police station and cooperating with the investigation in the initial stage.
