New Delhi: The CBI is all set to confront sanitation worker Gaurav with the alleged prime accused Brajesh Thakur during custodial interrogation as part of its investigation into the case pertaining to the alleged sexual abuse of minor girls at a shelter home in Muzaffarpur, Bihar. The agency on Friday arrested Brajesh Thakur’s sanitation worker Gaurav, a resident of Karja in Muzaffarpur district.

“The agency is preparing to confront Gaurav with Brajesh Thakur during interrogation. A local court granted rem-and of four days for Gaurav to the CBI to conduct further investigation in the Muzaffarp-ur shelter home case”, sources said. The sexual abuse of 34 girls over a period of time in the state government-funded shelter home came to light after a social audit was conducted by the Mumbai-based Tata Inst-itute of Social Sciences.

The agency has already frozen 20 bank accounts of Thakur. The SC recently vacated a Patna high court order restraining the media from reporting on the probe into the shelter home case.
