    Muzaffarpur Shelter Home: Education min Krishna Nandan Prasad Verma gets additional charge

    |

    New Delhi, Aug 9: Bihar Education Minister Krishna Nandan Prasad Verma has been given the additional charge of Welfare Department after Manju Verma's resignation as the minister over the Muzaffarpur Shelter Home scandal, said ANI on Thursday.

    Verma had stepped down yesterday following the alleged involvement of her husband Chandeshwar Verma in the scandal. While Verma continued to deny the charges, she said she was resigning because of the hue and cry the Opposition had made.

    Earlier in the day, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has taken all documents (such as FIR copy, chargesheet copy, case diary) related to Muzaffarpur Shelter Home case from the court.

    The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had also demanded detailed medical report of Brajesh Thakur, the key accused in Muzaffarpur shelter home rape case, from Muzaffarpur jail's doctor.

    Thakur, who was arrested on 2 June by the Bihar police in the case, has been resting at a hospital ward inside the Muzaffarpur jail. He reportedly complained of a backache, severe diabetes and heart problem.

    An FIR was registered against him on 31 May. He is on a judicial custody as the POCSO court reportedly denied to grant his custody to the police.

    On 8 August, the CBI froze the bank accounts of Thakur for further investigation into the matter.

    The shelter home case was uncovered around three months ago after a report by the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) in April revealed that the inmates were allegedly sexually abused.
