The Supreme Court today termed Muzzafarpur shelter home case as “horrible” and “scary” when details were placed before it by CBI. The top agency is the investigation into the case where several girls were allegedly raped and sexually abused.
A Bench headed by Justice Madan B. Lokur perused the status report filed by the CBI and said “what is this going on? This is horrible”. The apex court also took note of allegations referred by the CBI against shelter homeowner Brajesh Thakur and issued the notice to him to explain why he should not be transferred to a jail outside the state.
The CBI in its report had alleged that Mr. Thakur is an influential person and a mobile phone was recovered from him inside the jail where he is currently lodged under judicial custody. The Bench, also comprising Justices S. Abdul Nazeer and Deepak Gupta, noted that Mr. Thakur is an influential person.

The top court asked the Bihar and the CBI to explain the delay in tracing whereabouts of ex-Minister Manju Verma’s husband Chandrashekhar Verma. It had asked the Bihar Police to investigate the former Minister and her husband in connection with the recovery of huge quantity of ammunition from them.
Ms. Verma had to resign as the Minister of Social Welfare from the Bihar government in the wake of the Muzzafarpur shelter home sexual abuse case.
The Bench said the CBI team investigating the case should not be changed and posted the matter for hearing on October 30.
