The CBI has said that enquiries have been completed in these 17 shelter home cases, except the ongoing further probe in two matters.
The court had on March 20, 2018, framed charges against the accused, including Thakur, for offences of criminal conspiracy to commit rape and penetrative sexual assault against minors.
Manju Verma's husband was also accused of having links with Brajesh Thakur, the alleged mastermind behind the scandal.
Bihar Congress chief Kaukab Quadri said the resignation should have come earlier and “was necessary for a fair probe”.
Nitish said since there is a statutory provision that the state must provide protection to needy people at shelter homes, the government will invest funds to build such facilities and run them.
The CBI team is understood to have gone through documents kept there and spoken to other officials posted at the DCPU office, the sources said.
