Bihar moves SC against bail to RJD MLA in rape case
The Nitish Kumar government in Bihar on Wednesday moved the Supreme Court challenging the bail granted to suspended RJD MLA Raj Ballabh Yadav by the Patna High Court in the rape case of a minor girl.
A bench of justices A R Dave and L Nageswara Rao agreed to list the appeal of Bihar government for hearing on Friday as it was prayed there was an urgency in it.
Bihar government counsel Gopal Singh said that Patna High Court has erred in granting bail to Yadav in a heinous case like this.
Yadav had allegedly raped the minor girl at his residence in Biharsharif on February 6, this year. After evading arrest for considerable time he surrendered after a local court issues proclamation notice and an order to attach his properties for not surrendering before the police.
The Bihar Police, in its charge sheet has also named a woman and her relatives as accused on the ground that they have been supplying women and girls to the RJD MLA representing Nawada Assembly constituency.
