Patna: A list of 40 mobile phone numbers were recovered by the Bihar Police from Brajesh Thakur, the main accused who is lodged in Muzaffarpur Central Jail for the rape of 34 girls in shelter home.
Police carried out simultaneous raids on the prisons across the state. Police said that Thakur was spotted in the visitor's area of the jail. The team recovered two handwritten pages with 40 mobile phone numbers and the names of those they were issued against.
According to a district administration official, names of some powerful people, including a minister, were found written on two pages recovered from Thakur during the search.
Raids were conducted on over a dozen of jails in Bihar and the police recovered objectionable items from prisoners.
Thakur was arrested on June 2. “He has been staying in the medical ward of the jail on health grounds and managed to avoid staying in the prisoners ward,” the police said.
