After obtaining court’s order yesterday for attachment of fugitive MLA’s property, Nalanda police accompanied by Nawada police went to Yadav’s village at English Pathra under Muffasil police station of the district and attached his property, Nawada Sadar SDO Rajesh Kumar said.

A truck-load of households goods belonging to the RJD MLA has been dispatched to Nalanda, while another truck was being loaded.

Yadav is accused of raping a minor girl at his residence in the village on February 6. He has been absconding since the victim’s family lodged a complaint on February 9 in this regard.

Biharsharif Additional District and Sessions Judge Rashmi Shikha had ordered attachment of Yadav’s property yesterday after hearing police’s fresh plea filed on the basis of confessional statement of co-accused Sulekha Devi, who was allegedly involved in the flesh trade, in the case.

The court had on February 22 put the process of attachment of property on hold for a month and had asked Yadav to surrender before it failing which his properties would be attached. The court had asked the police to paste the notice at Yadav’s residence.

Biharsharif court, which had issued arrest warrant against Yadav and three others in the case, had on February 20 rejected the anticipatory bail petition of suspended RJD MLA.

Nawada District Magistrate yesterday suspended the licenses of Yadav’s three arms – a rifle, a pistol and a double-barrel gun.

The DM also asked the fugitive legislator to deposit arms with the concerned police station failing which his licenses would be cancelled.

Yadav, an RJD MLA from Nawada, who served as minister in Rabri Devi ministry in the past, has gone underground after his arrest order was issued by Deputy Inspector General of Police Shalin on Saturday last after finding the complaint of the minor victim girl’s family true.
