No evidence found of murder of children in Muzaffarpur shelter home case, the CBI tells the Supreme Court
Thirtyfive girls believed to have been murdered in the Muzaffarpur shelter home sexual abuse case had been found to be alive, the CBI told the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
Allegations about the ‘murders’ had first surfaced last year in the statements of girls rescued from the shelter home run by the kingpin, Brajesh Thakur. The CBI had also found that the names of these had mysteriously disappeared from the balikagarh (girls’ home). In March 2019, the agency told the court that 35 girls with identical or similar names had indeed lived in the shelter home at one point of time or the other.
