Court summons Lalu for landing chopper without permission
Muzaffarpur (Bihar): A court here on Thursday asked
RJD supremo Lalu Prasad and former Union minister Raghuvansh
Prasad Singh to appear before it on July 4 in connection
with a complaint against them for landing their helicopter on
NH 28 at Maniari in Muzaffarpur district without authoritative
permission on August 1, 2007.
Additional District Judge (VII) Choudhary Vijendra Kumar
Roy summoned the duo after hearing a revision petition filed
by advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha.
Ojha had charged Prasad and Singh with landing the chopper
on the national highway during the aerial survey of floods on
August 1, 2007 without prior permission from the district
He had also alleged that the landing of the chopper led
to commotion and created law and order problems because of
a stampede-like situation created by locals who had taken
shelter on the road because of floods.
Earlier, the sub-divisional magistrate had dismissed his
complaint on May 5, 2009. Ojha then filed the revision
petition in the court of the district judge who transferred it
to additional judge for hearing on merit.
While Lalu Prasad was Railway minister, Singh was the
minister for Rural Development at that time.
