In June, a social audit revealed that at least 34 minor girls of the shelter home were allegedly raped in the shelter home.
The Central Bureau of Investigation had searched their residence in Patna and Begusarai. Fifty live cartridges were recovered from their Begusarai house.
“Police have raided a few places to arrest Verma,” a district police official said.
Last month, a Begusarai district court dismissed the anticipatory bail of the former minister, Manju Verma, and her husband.
Manju Verma resigned as the Social Welfare Minister of Bihar on August 8 following the allegations that her husband has links with the mastermind of Muzaffarpur Shelter Home case, Brajesh Thakur.
