“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,” said Supreme Court to Bihar government.
Earlier on Thursday a bench of Supreme Court hearing on Muzaffarpur shelter home rape case had termed the whole episode scary, horrible, and terrible. After the findings of the CBI team probing the Muzaffarpur shelter home sexual abuse case, the court said that the use of sedatives to molest girls residing in a shelter home was dangerous and horrifying.
The court on Thursday had issued a notice to the shelter homeowner and main accused, Brajesh Thakur, asking why he should not be transferred to another state to ensure a fair probe.
The case was being heard by a bench that comprised of Justice Madan B Lokur, Justice S Abdul Najeer, and Justice Dipak Gupta. The development report said that the inmates of the home were allegedly sedated. The report also mentioned the building of the shelter home that had no ventilation except on the top floor.
