Will ailing RJD chief Lalu Yadav go to jail? Arrest warrant issued in weapons case

Former Chief Minister of Bihar Lalu Prasad Yadav has received a big shock, the MP/MLA Court of Gwalior has issued an arrest warrant against him. This development has come to light during the Lok Sabha elections, due to which the legal troubles of the ailing RJD chief have increased.

This warrant relates to a 30-year-old case under the Arms Act. Specifically, it relates to alleged purchases of arms under Form 16 between August 23, 1995, and May 15, 1997. Investigation reveals that arms and cartridges were obtained from three different firms during this period.

A total of 23 persons are involved in the case, of whom six are facing trial, two are deceased and 14 are absconding. The police had filed the charge sheet in July 1998 and in April the same year, a ‘Farari Panchnama’ was allegedly prepared for Lalu Prasad Yadav’s son Kundrika Singh.

However, a discrepancy arises as Lalu Prasad Yadav’s father’s name is not recorded as Kundrika Singh but Kundan Rai.

Despite this, due to its connection with Lalu Prasad Yadav, this matter has been brought in the MP/MLA court of Gwalior.
