Patna, July 29 :Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav on Saturday accused the state government of protecting the main suspect Brajesh Thakur in Muzaffarpur shelter home case and asked when he will be arrested.

He said, “Several drugs and things related to abortion were being used at the shelter home. Still, the main suspect Brajesh Thakur is being protected by govt. When will he be arrested? Till when minor girls will be raped in the state?”





The CBI on Sunday took over the case of rapes in a shelter home in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur and filed an FIR to probe the crime in which at least 34 minor girls were victimised, the agency said.

The move comes a day after the Congress demanded a Supreme Court-monitored Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) inquiry into the incident and sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s attention towards such crimes.

A CBI official said the agency registered a case on the request of Bihar government and a further notification from Central government.

Under pressure from opposition, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday recommended a CBI probe into the series of rapes that he described as “a heinous crime”.
