The shelter home rapes had come to light earlier this year when the Mumbai-based Tata Institute of Social Sciences, in its report of social audit conducted of shelter homes across the state, cited complaints of sexual abuse by inmates of the care unit for minor girls in Muzaffarpur.

A complaint was filed by the state social welfare department thereafter and police arrested 10 people, including Brajesh Thakur in this connection.
