New Delhi, Oct 25: The Supreme Court on Thursday rapped the Bihar government over Muzaffarpur shelter home case, where at least 34 girls were sexually assaulted. 

While pursuing the status report filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation on the probe in Muzaffarpur shelter home case, the court said: ” it reveals shocking, horrible and scary details of how the crime was committed”.

“It’s very scary and terrible. What is the Bihar government doing? Brajesh Thakur(main accused) is a very influential man,” said the apex court.

A bench of Justice Madan B Lokur stated that Brajesh Thakur, main accused in the case, appears to be a very influential person and is obstructing the investigation.

The Court issued a show cause notice to Thakur seeking his reply as to why he should not be shifted out of jail in Bihar to jail in some other state.

The top court also directed Bihar government and CBI to file a response as to why Chandra Shekhar Verma, husband of former Bihar minister Manju Verma, has not been arrested yet
