A fresh FIR has been registered against Brijesh Thakur, the main accused in the Muzaffarpur shelter home case, following the “disappearance” of 11 women from the premises of a self-help group run by his NGO.
Thakur is in judicial custody in connection with the mental, physical and sexual exploitation of the girls residing at Balika Grih, Muzaffarpur.
The FIR was registered against him last evening by Assistant Director of the Social Welfare Department Devesh Kumar Sharma, Mahila Thana in-charge said.
After the sex scandal surfaced last month and the NGO was black-listed, the condition of other homes run by the NGO was reviewed.
During the review, 11 women supposed to have been staying in the home for the self-help group in the Chhoti Kalyani area were found missing, official sources said.
There was no communication on record from the NGO to the Social Welfare Department about their whereabouts, they said.
