News Agencies | Updated on: 17 October 2018, 17:06 IST

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday registered a money laundering case in connection with the Muzaffarpur shelter home case in which 44 girls were allegedly sexually assaulted at a government-run shelter home.

The case has been filed under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).


The ED sources said that the alleged mastermind behind the scandal Brajesh Thakur and his staff were involved in illegally taking funds from the state government in the name of shelter home.

More than 40 minor girls were allegedly sexually assaulted over a period of time in the shelter home which was run by Thakur's state-funded non- governmental organisation (NGO). The NGO was blacklisted and the girls were shifted to shelter homes in Patna and Madhubani.

As many as 11 employees of the shelter home were arrested including Thakur.

The investigation in the case is being carried out by the Central Bureau of Investigation.
