Lalu Pitches for JD(U) MLA Anant Singh's Arrest in Murder Case

RJD chief Lalu Prasad today pitched for the arrest of JD-U MLA Anant Singh who was allegedly involved in the kidnapping of four youths and killing of one of them on June 17.

"Ont of the victim's family met me and I telephoned Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar yesterday over the matter. He took it very seriously and assured me that the state government will deal strictly with anybody who breaks the law," Prasad said while talking to media persons.

"Thanks to Kumar as well as Patna IG Kundan Krishnan that six persons involved in the crime were immediately arrested after that. One of them gave statement to the police that Mokama MLA Anant Singh was involved in it," Prasad said.

The veteran leader, a former Bihar chief minister, sent an RJD probe team to the Barh sub-division of the district where the incident had happened. The probe team returned and recommended that the MLA should be arrested.

Prasad attacked Singh publicly, saying that his history as well as notoriety was well known to everybody and the body of Putus Yadav (one of the kidnapped victims) was recovered from his native village Ladma in Barh subdivision of Patna district.

The RJD chief pointed out that the family members of the victims had told him how criminals, armed with AK-47, had come in SUVs and kidnapped the youths from their homes.

"The local police should have raided Ladma village immediately. It would have saved Yadav's life, but it wasted time in taking action," Prasad said.
