With the latest round of revelations, the Bihar minister Manju Verma has finally tendered resignation.
This after the allegations surfaced against her husband, who is accused of links to the Muzaffarpur shelter home rape horror.
Police have now claimed that the call records confirm that minister Manju Verma’s husband was regularly in touch with the man who ran the shelter home in Muzaffarpur.
The shelter home rapes encompass that over 30 girls were raped and tortured over past many months.
The minister’s husband Chandeshwar Verma not only visited the shelter home nine times but also used to regularly have telephonic conversations with the accused Brajesh Thakur.
Confronted with evidence, the minister had admitted that her husband was in touch with Brajesh Thakur, whose NGO ran the shelter home where girls were raped, beaten, assaulted and exploited over four years.
It need be mentioned that Shibha Kumari, wife of Muzaffarpur Child Protection Officer Ravi Roshan, alleged that the minister’s husband used to visit the shelter home frequently.’
On Monday, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his deputy Sushil Modi had ruled out the resignation of Manju Verma, who is the state’s Social Welfare minister.>
