Muzaffarpur case: Former minister Manju Verma's husband surrenders before courtOctober 29, 2018 14:03
After Supreme court slammed the Bihar government and the CBI for the delay in tracing the whereabouts of Chandrashekhar Verma, husband of former state minister Manju Verma, the former has surrendered in court.
Soon after Chandrashekhar, who was absconding for over two months, surrendered in a court in Begusarai district,he was sent to judicial custody for 14 days.
Bihar DGP K S Diwedi told media that Chandrashekhar Verma has surrendered under pressure from police."It is result of police pressure as police was about to attach his property on Monday," Diwedi said.
Manju Verma's husband Chandrasekhar Verma's plea of bail was rejected by the lower court and Patna high court repeatedly.
In last September police issued an arrest warrant against Manju Verma's husband Chandrasekhar Verma in connection with an FIR registered by the CBI under the Arms Act.
At least 34 girls who lived at the shelter home were found to have been raped during a social audit in June.
CBI had seized 50 live cartridges from the former minister's Begusarai home and filed the FIR against Verma and her husband.
Manju Verma resigned on August 8 following allegations that Brajesh Thakur, the main accused in the Muzaffarpur case, had links with her husband.
