The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday registered a case of money laundering against NGO who run Bihar’s Muzaffarpur shelter home where 34 minor girls were allegedly sexually assaulted and raped. The agency said, “we will soon issue summons to the accused including the centre owner Brajesh Thakur”.

The alleged sexual exploitation of the girls by the shelter home officials were first highlighted in an audit report by the Tata Institute of Social Science (TISS), Mumbai. The report was subsequently submitted to the state’s Social Welfare Department in April 2018.
