The rapes at a children's shelter in Bihar's Muzaffarpur has shocked and shamed the country. A place meant as a shelter for girls where over 34 of the inmates from ages 7 to 17 were repeatedly raped, abused and subjected to terrible violence. What has emerged is a sickening story of a nexus between the man who ran the shelter, Brajesh Thakur, and politicians, police, bureaucrats and even goons. It's a story that has left us all horrified and has raised so many questions. We ask how did this happen, how many other places is it happening in, how can we prevent something like this from ever happening again and how do we ensure the perpetrators are punished.
