JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi surrenders, alleges conspiracy by BJP to falsely implicate her
Manorama Devi, the absconding JD(U) lawmaker, had surrendered days after an arrest warrant was issued against her by the Bihar Government over liquor prohibition.
Gaya: Suspended Janata Dal (United) MLC Manorama Devi, who is accused of violating liquor prohibition law, was sent to 14 days judicial custody after she surrendered before the Gaya district court on Tuesday.
The absconding JD(U) lawmaker surrendered days after an arrest warrant was issued against her by the Bihar Government for defying liquor prohibition.
However, before being sent to judicial custody, she alleged political conspiracy by the BJP to falsely implicate her in the case.
I am being falsely implicated under political conspiracy, BJP is doing that, suspended JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi told reporters.
The information is false, no liquor bottles were found in my house: the JD(U) lawmaker said.
A court in Gaya would hear the anticipatory bail plea of Manorama Devi on May 19.
Devi filed an anticipatory bail in the court on May 13 after an arrest warrant was issued against her.
The Gaya Police had last week sealed the house of the suspended JD (U) MLC.
Devi's son Rakesh Ranjan Yadav alias Rocky and her husband Bindi Yadav are already in jail over the killing of Aditya Sachdeva, a businessman's son, in a case of road rage last week.
