The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has demanded a detailed medical report of Brajesh Thakur, the key accused in the Muzaffarpur shelter home rape cases.

Thakur, who was arrested on June 2, has been resting at a hospital ward inside the Muzaffarpur jail. He reportedly complained of a backache, severe diabetes and heart problem. He is on a judicial custody as the POCSO Act court reportedly denied to grant his custody to the police.

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

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

Due to Thakur's relations to the case, the CBI has frozen his bank account and are investigating his accounts and properties. The watchman of the shelter, who served as the key witness for the case, has been arrested.

The husband of Bihar's Social Welfare Minister Manju Verma has also been discovered to have links with Thakur.

I have resigned because of the furor created by the media and opposition. I have full faith in both the CBI and the Judiciary. I am sure the truth will be out and my husband will come out clean," she said in a statement.
