MUZAFFARPUR: A special POCSO court here sent to jail two men, accused in the shelter home sex scandal case, after their five-day remand ended Tuesday.
The CBI produced Ramashankar Singh alias Master saheb and Vicky in the court of special Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Judge R P Tiwari Tuesday who sent them to jail.
The CBI, which had taken the two accused on remand for interrogation on January 18, Tuesday sought an extension of their remand for further inquiry into the case but the special court rejected the plea.
The investigating agency gathered vital information from the two during the interrogation but refused to share any details at this stage, police sources said.
The CBI had on January 12 arrested Vicky, a close relative of Madhu alias Shaista Parveen, who was a key associate of Brajesh Thakur, the prime accused in the case.
While Ramashankar Singh alias Master Saheb, whose name was mentioned in the CBI charge sheet filed in December last year, surrendered in the POCSO Court on January 15.
The scandal had come to light in May last year when an FIR was lodged by the state Social Welfare Department based on the report of the social audit conducted by Mumbai-based Tata Institute of Social Sciences wherein sexual abuse of inmates at the "Balika Grih" was cited.
