Patna: In the case of Bihar shelter home scandal, the CBI has made a sensational allegation in the Supreme Court that the main accused, Brajesh Thakur, and his accomplices killed 11 girls whose bones have been recovered from the cremation ground where they were buried.

In its affidavit filed in the apex court, the CBI said that the names of the 11 girls appeared in the statements recorded by other victims during the investigation. Thakur and his accomplices had been the prime suspects right after the horrifying case surfaced.

The CBI submission in the court is based on the report of the Tata Institute of Social Science. After the investigation of this case was handed over to the CBI, the premier investigating agency of the country came up with charge sheets against 21 accused, including Thakur.

On Friday, the case appeared before the bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Deepak Gupta.

The bench said that it would issue a formal notice to the CBI and the investigating agency would submit its reply in four weeks.

Defence lawyers Shoaib Alam and Faujia Shakeel told the bench that the CBI had not investigated the conspiracy in a proper manner. The charges against the accused have not been filed under the stringent provisions of the law, they argued.

The bench asked whether it should give instructions without hearing the CBI.
Attorney-general KK Venugopal, appearing for the CBI, told the court that the agency has submitted its reply.

After a brief hearing, the bench fixed the matter for hearing on 6 May. The CBI refuted the charge of saving the accused in the Bihar shelter home case. The bench headed has now asked the petitioner to file a reply in this case.

Petitioner Nivedita Jha accused the CBI of saving the accused too. Her argument was that neither had the CBI registered offences of crimes like murder against the accused nor have they acted on the outsiders involved in the scandal.

The Supreme Court had sought the CBI response to this allegation. Patna CBI SP Davinder Singh has filed an affidavit.
