The Supreme Court on Thursday cancelled the bail plea of RJD MLA Rajballabh Yadav, a Bihar lawmaker accused of raping a 15-year-old school girl. Yadav will now remain in jail court ordered.
The apex court had on Wednesday reserved its order in the matter.
In April, Yadav was named as one of the main accused in a chargesheet filed by Nalanda Police, after he allegedly raped a minor girl at his residence on February 6th, following which he was immediately suspended by the party.
After absconding for almost one month, Yadav had surrendered in March before a chief magistrate’s court in Bihar Sharif in Nalanda and was sent to jail.
However, he was granted bail by the Patna High Court on September 30, which the opposition used to criticize the state government for not placing facts against the RJD MLA before the Patna High Court. Yadav, an MLA from Nawada assembly constituency, was suspended by the RJD after he was booked in the rape case on February 6.
