Bhopal: Police is seeking the arrest of BJP MLA Asha Rani Singh who represents Bijawar constituency in Chhatarpur district of Madhya Pradesh in connection with the
murder of her maid servant in 2007.

Police sources said here today that the legislator has been untraceable since last three months and during this period, anticipatory bail applications on behalf of the MLA
were filed both in the district and High Court.

The pleas were rejected by both the courts as the bail was stating that she was a political figure.
Tijji Bai who worked in Asha Rani and her husband, Ashok Vir Vikram Singh alias Bhaiya Raja`s house was murdered on May 21, 2007.

Vikram Singh is in jail since January this year on the charge of being involved in a murder of a relative here.
Police sources said it had become tough to apprehend Asha Rani as she had not attended even the assembly sessions during the last three months.
