Few politicians can claim to enjoy torturing their voters, at least not literally. Lalit Yadav is a dishonourable exception. A liquor contractor, muscleman, social mover, political provider, man for all seasons not above breaking a few rules and bones, Yadav is not what columnists are apt to call the "consummate" politician. So when last week the police caught up with a badly-battered truck driver and his helper trapped in the outhouses of his sprawling ministerial bungalow on a high-security road named after Lord Hardinge, it merely proved a point.

The police version was filed belatedly after a media expose, some appropriate political noises and a call from an influential Congress politician in Delhi. It says Dinanath Baitha and Karu Ram, driver and helper of one of Yadav’s many trucks, reported that their truck had gone missing on the Hajipur highway on the outskirts of Patna. The incident took place nearly a month ago.
