Who is 'real-life' Mithilesh Sinha?

 

Dilip Kumar Verma was the chairperson of the Muzaffarpur District Child Welfare Committee when the infamous case took place. The movie showcases that Bansi Sahu was arrested but Mithilesh was not. And it is true in real life as well. In real life, Dilip Kumar Verma absconded after his name popped up in the Muzzafarpur Shelter Home Case. However, a December 2018 report suggests that Dilip Kumar Verma surrendered before the court after the Police had launched a hunt for him. 

 

In 2018, the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), Mumbai, audited 110 shelter homes in Bihar, exposing a racket involving sexual abuse of several young girls, including minors. As per reports, TISS flagged 17 shelters as "grave concern," including the Balika Grih in Muzaffarpur, which was run by local politician Brajesh Thakur's NGO Seva Sankalp Evam Vikas Samiti.

 

After the Muzzafarpur Balika Griha's conditions came to the fore, Bihar Police came into action and charged 11 people, including Brajesh Thakur, Dilip Kumar Verma, chairperson of the Muzaffarpur District Child Welfare Committee, Vikas Kumar, a member of the Child Welfare Committee; Ravi Roshan, a child protection officer; and Rosy Rani, assistant director of the child protection unit.
