Bihar legislator refused anticipatory bail in rape case

Patna, Feb 20 (IANS) A Bihar court on Saturday rejected the anticipatory bail plea of Rajballabh Yadav, a legislator of the ruling RJD who is accused of raping a minor girl, a government lawyer said.

The district civil court in Biharsharif, the headquarters of Nalanda, rejected the legislator’s anticipatory bail plea after hearing both sides in the case.

Police have been raiding different places to arrest Rajballabh Yadav, who is still absconding after a warrant of arrest was issued after the girl from Nalanda district filed an FIR against him.

The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) last week suspended Rajballabh Yadav, the legislator from Nawada assembly constituency.

Police said the charges against Yadav were found to be true during their preliminary investigation.

According to the police complaint, a woman named Sulekha Devi took the girl to an undisclosed location in Nalanda on February 6 and forced her to drink liquor. She was then raped by a man, later identified as Yadav.

After she was raped, the girl said the woman gave her Rs.30,000.
