    Bihar shelter home horror continues: 5 more rapes reported, toll at 34

    A report last week had found that 29 of the 44 girls were raped in the Muzaffarpur home. This horrific tale of sexual abuse came to light when the girls opened up to volunteers from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences during a social audit.

    Ten of the 11 accused have been arrested, including Brajesh Thakur who ran the NGO home. The home has been blacklisted and all girls have been shifted to shelters in neighbouring districts.

    The probe has been handed over to the CBI, by Chief Minister of Bihar Nitish Kumar after he came under pressure from the opposition. The Bihar Social Welfare Department also filed a police complaint based on the audit report.
