In August, the Central Bureau of Investigation had registered a case against Manju Verma and her husband Chandrashekhar at Cheria Bariarpur police station of Begusarai district after the probe agency seized about 50 cartridges from their residence during searches, which were a part of Muzaffarpur Shelter Home case.
Though, Chandrashekhar Verma, surrendered before District Court Manjhaul on October 29. While the former minister is absconding.
Manju Verma had resigned as Bihar minister of Social Welfare on August 8 following allegations that her husband has links with the main accused of Muzaffarpur Shelter Home case, Brajesh Thakur.
The Bihar Police has launched a search operation at several places in Bihar and Jharkhand to trace Verma.
Of the 42 girls lodged at the residential hostel run by Thakur’s NGO, 34 were found to have been sexually assaulted. The incident came to light after a social audit by the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai.
Since then, the shelter home has been sealed.
