THREE DAYS after Nawada MLA Rajballabh Yadav of RJD, accused of raping a Nalanda minor, was released on bail by Patna High Court, the victim Wednesday said there is threat to her and her family members’ lives and sought to know how the accused got bail after the state government promised to stand by them.

Opposition BJP Wednesday accused the state government of not opposing Yadav’s bail plea.

Yadav surrendered before a Nalanda court in March, after absconding following the alleged crime.

The Class X student, who comes from Bihar Sharif, Nalanda’s district headquarters, and was allegedly raped in Nawada in February, sent a WhatsApp message to the local media Wednesday.

She wrote, “Ab wo to kuch v kar skta h; police v use darti h fir humlog to kuch nahhain… Ab humare aur humare family ko jeene ka koi maksad ni rah gya (He can do anything now; even the police are scared of him… I and my family have no reason to live any longer).”

The victim also wrote, “…I have already died after the incident; please help me reach this message to our chief minister. I want to ask the chief minister, ‘what will happen to us? How will we live now? My career is anyway already over’…”

“How did he get bail if the government is with us,” the victim asked the government in her message to the media.

The girl took her Class X exams after undergoing counselling from psychologists and had cleared it in first division.

Taking on the Nitish Kumar government, BJP legislature party leader Sushil Kumar Modi said, “Rajballabh Yadav’s bail order shows that the state government did not protest the bail at all. The government thought public memory is short and let Yadav come out on bail.”

Indicating that the government had no role in the development, JD(U) spokesperson Neeraj Kumar said, “Getting bail is part of the judicial process.”

                  I am ready to accept Nitish Kumar's Draconian Anti-Liquor Law wherein Head of the FAMILY is held responsible and is to be put behind bars if any one from his family breaks the law ... PROVIDED ... same applies to the Chief Minister also ... as head of the government, the CM should be held responsible and is to be held guilty if any one from his MLAs breaks the law ... lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;As said by Nitish, his Anti-Liquor Law will bring positive changes in the SOCIETY ...lt;br/gt;AND, if NITISH acts on my above advice ... it will bring POSITIVE CHANGES NOT ONLY IN THE SOCIETY BUT IN THE POLITICS OF THE COUNTRY ALSO ... lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;DOES THE CM HAVE THE COURAGE ... ???

                      “Getting bail is part of the judicial process.” This is called in Telugu "chevilo puvvulu pettatam" (this is to fool the people by placing flowers in the ears). How come there is government lawyer at the court?

                        While the nation prepares for an external war, there are equally big battles to be fought internally...how can we let a rapist walk away scott free? How many more Nirbhayas do we need to know prove that these rapists are the necessary evils to the society that need to be eradicated?

                            The judiciary and state govt is reeling with rampant corruption which helps criminals and rapists to get bail. The courts are taking excuses of state govt who is not opposing bail of criminals. But all must see overall interest of society and must ensure that criminals must be afraid of law but the current situation is quite opposite.

                                When Nitish Kumar won the elections with an alliance with the corrupt political leader like Lallu Prasad Yadav, who is a convict and a sentenced in a large corruption case, Nitish has lost all his erstwhile political credibility and personal moral integrity as a Chief Minister. Now, he is under the mercy of Lallu Prasad for his ambition to continue as the Chief Minister of Bihar! And so you cannot expect Nitish any more of his former self to act with his upright political courage and conviction!

                                  It is very disgraceful to see lot of rape cases every day in India. Why Govt of India not make death penalty for rapist. Women are half the potion of India. There is no difference in rapist and terrorist. One is internal and the other is external

                                      Jungle Raj 2. Poor girl has no escape. Better her family leave Bihar ASAP. Nitish appeal to SC is just a farce to fool people.
