Slamming Bihar government over not arresting Manju Verma, Supreme Court tells Bihar government that “Just because Manju Verma happens to be cabinet minister of Bihar government, it 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."
Brajesh Thakur is the main accused in the Muzaffarpur Shelter home case who and his staff were involved in illegally taking funds from the state government in the name of shelter home.
