New Delhi, Oct 30: The Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered a transfer of Brijesh Thakur, the main accused in Muzaffarpur shelter home case, to a high-security jail in Punjab’s Patiala.
The apex court also rapped the Bihar government for not arresting former Bihar minister Manju Verma.
“Just because she (Bihar minister Manju Verma) happens to be cabinet minister doesn’t make her above the law. The whole thing is highly suspicious. Why has she not been arrested? It’s too much. Nobody is bothered about the law”, the court told the Bihar government.
The top court expressed shock when advocate informed it that girls in the shelter home were given drugs.
“These girls are being injected with drugs so that they can be raped. What is this going on?”, the bench said.
The court asked the Central Bureau of Investigation to submit a list of CBI officers investigating the case from September 20 until now by October 31.
