The Supreme Court Friday sought a response from suspended RJD MLA Raj Ballabh Yadav on why his bail should not be cancelled in connection with charges of raping a minor.
A bench of justices A K Sikri and N V Ramana issued a notice to Yadav and sought his reply on October 17, the next date of the hearing. The bench, however, declined to stay at this juncture the order of the Patna High Court, which granted bail to Yadav.
The bench was hearing a petition filed by Bihar government against the bail order. Representing the state, advocate Gopal Singh had urged the bench to stay the high court order and said the statement of the victim was being recorded in the trial court. Singh said the high court had erred in granting bail to Yadav in a heinous case like this.
