MMC orders demolition of shelter home where 34 inmates were raped

The Muzaffarpur Municipal Corporation (MMC) has ordered demolition of the shelter home where 34 minor women were allegedly raped over the last few years until the matter came to light in may this year.

A notice during this regard has been passed that the four-storied building owned by mastermind of the Muzaffarpur sex scandal and owner of the shelter home Brajesh Thakur, has to be demolished within one month, failing which the corporation will go ahead to execute the orders of the Supreme Court.

It may be mentioned that the apex court, which is monitoring the ongoing CBI probe in this case, on Oct 25 had raised severe concerns about the shelter home where the horrific incident took place. The court had ordered the MMC to examine the building and take necessary actions.

Following instructions from the Supreme Court, the MMC on Oct 29 had issued notice to Brajesh Thakur asking him to produce the layout of the building inside 24 hours. However, Brajesh Thakur's mother Manorma Devi had sought one months time from the corporation to produce the building layout.

On Saturday, the MMC carried out a detailed examination of the building layout of the shelter home, which it had in its record, and found that in 2004 Brajesh Thakur had got it passed for constructing a two-storied building but went on to construct a four storied building flouting the norms.

Manorma Devi who was present during the meeting failed to provide adequate answers to the violation of the laws.
