Bihar Police to move court against Pappu Yadav’s bail

Patna, Aug 3 (IANS) Bihar Police on Monday said it will move the Patna High Court to cancel Lok Sabha member Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav’s bail for repeatedly violating the rules and creating law and order problems.

“We cannot allow people like Yadav, who is on bail, to repeatedly violate the rules and create law and order problems. We will file a petition in the court to cancel his bail,” Senior Superintendent of Police Vikas Vaibhav said.

Vaibhav has directed that the criminal cases against Yadav be re-opened.

Yadav, who was expelled from Lalu Prasad’s Rashtriya Janata Dal for six years for anti-party activities, floated his own party Jan Kranti Adhikar Party.

Citing lack of evidence, the Patna High Court in 2013 acquitted Yadav in CPI-M leader Ajit Sarkar Sarkar’s murder. Sarkar was killed on May 14, 1998, while returning from a meeting of party workers in Purnea.

A division bench of Patna High Court Justice V.N. Singh and Justice K.K. Lal set aside the February 2008 conviction of Yadav and co-accused Rajan Tiwari and Anil Kumar Yadav. The high court acquitted all the three of all charges in the case.
