New Delhi: An arrest order was issued against Rajballabh Yadav, a legislator of Bihar’s ruling RJD on Saturday, after a minor girl filed a complaint of abduction and rape against him, police said.
The girl from Nalanda district filed an FIR against Yadav, the legislator from Nawada, for her abduction and rape.
Police said the charges against Yadav were found to be true during their preliminary investigation. Yadav is on the run.
