SC to hear Bihar government's petition challenging bail granted to rapist RJD MLA

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

The Supreme on Tuesday will hear a petition filed by the government, challenging the bail granted to RJD Raj Ballabh Yadav by the High

In April, Yadav was named as one of the main accused in a charge-sheet filed by Nalanda Police, after he allegedly raped a minor girl at his Biharsharif residence on February 6.

He was immediately suspended by the party.

After absconding for almost one month, Yadav had surrendered in March before a chief magistrate's in Sharif in Nalanda and was sent to jail.

However, he was granted bail by the High Court on September 30, which the opposition used to criticize the state government for not placing facts against the RJD before the High Court.
