Pappu Yadav released from jail
Expelled RJD MP Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav was on Friday released from Beur jail here after 25 days following his arrest on March 27.
The Madhepura MP secured bail from Patna High Court on April 19 and was released on Friday, Beur jail officials said.
Yadav's supporters who gathered outside the jail celebrated his release by distributing sweets. From the jail, the Janadhikar Party chief proceeded straight to Motihari to meet family members of two union leaders of a private sugar mill who died after self-immolation attempt on April 10 to protest against non-payment of arrears. Yadav told PTI that he would provide Rs 50,000 to each of the two family on behalf of Janadhikar Party. "Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD president Lalu Prasad have no time to meet the two bereaved families. But, I thought I should go straightway to them in their hour of grief," he said.
