    Patna, Oct 9: The Patna High Court on Tuesday dismissed an anticipatory bail petition filed by former Bihar social welfare minister Manju Verma in connection with the recovery of cartridges from her in-laws' place during a CBI raid as part of the probe into the Muzaffarpur shelter home sex-scandal case.

    Verma approached the high court seeking anticipatory bail after the Begusarai civil court dismissed the bail petitions filed by her and her husband Chandrashekhar Verma in the case on August 25.
