    Delivering a sharp message to Nitish Kumar, Gandhi said,''"If Nitish Kumar is really ashamed, he should quickly take action... Prove it by your work."

    Earlier, RJD leader and former Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav demanded death penalty for Muzzafarpur shelter home owner Brajesh Thakur. He also rued apathy by the administration in the case and said that Brajesh was a close aide of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

    The case came to light when Bihar's social welfare department filed an FIR based on a social audit of the shelter home, conducted by the Tata Institute of Social Sciences in Mumbai (TISS).

    FIRs were filed on May 31 and July 29 in connection with the case, while the shelter home was sealed on June 14.
