With pre-arrest bail rejected Will Now Nagpur Police arrest VVIP Criminal and BJP leader Munna Yadav? With this rejection, Yadav has very little choice but to move the High Court

Nagpur: The Sessions Court on Saturday rejected anticipatory bail application moved by BJP leader and Chairman of the Maharashtra State Construction Workers Welfare Board Omprakash alias Munna Yadav in his ongoing tiff with arch rival Mangal Yadav.

Now the big Question arises, Will Nagpur Police without going into any political pressure act and arrest Munna Yadav, a person with criminal records in past too?

Munna and his brother Bala Yadav claimed that they were victims of the violence unleashed by other group. They claimed that a family dispute has been unnecessarily converted into a criminal offence and they have been implicated under various provisions of IPC without any base or evidence.

With this rejection, Yadav has very little choice but to move the High Court to secure anticipatory bail and avoid his arrest and embarassment to the party on the eve of winter session.

Due to altercation over bursting of fire crackers between family members of Munna Yadav and Mangal Yadav, Dhantoli police had booked both families for causing hurt, grievous hurt and later also slapped attempt to murder charges against Yadav family members. Dhantoli police had booked Munna Yadav and others under Sections 452, 307, 323, 324, 325, 141, 143, 147, 148, 149 of Indian Penal Code read with sub-sections 4, 25 of Arms Act and 135 of Bombay Police Act while acting on the complaint lodged by Awadhesh alias Papa Yadav of Rana Pratap Nagar against him.

The prosecution strongly opposed grant of anticipatory bail to him and stated that there was prima-facie evidence against him in the instant case in which attempt to murder charge has been slapped against Yadav. The cops claimed that Munna had assaulted other Yadav family in their presence and was also likely to tamper the evidence and intimidate witnesses. Besides, since last six weeks, he was absconding and urged the court to reject his anticipatory
bail application.

Yadav’s wife and BJP corporator Laxmi Yadav has already got the anticipatory bail from High Court in connection with offence registered against Yadav family members at Dhantoli police station. The High Court had rejected anticipatory bail applications of Karan and Arjun- sons of Munna. Since then, Yadav brothers were not visible in public life, but recently his posters surfaced on the occasion of his birthday after which his political detractors launched a fresh tirade against him questioning delay by Nagpur police to arrest him.

In a cross complaint, Tara Omprakash Yadav (40) has also lodged a complaint against Mangal Yadav, Papa Yadav, Gabbar Yadav, Sagar Yadav and Manju Yadav. According to Tara Yadav, the accused had picked a quarrel with Karan Yadav and Arjun Yadav over the issue of bursting of crackers and allegedly assaulted them. The police had booked above accused under Sections 141, 143, 147, 148, 149, 323, 324 and 506 of Indian Penal Code read with sub-sections 4, 25 of Arms Act and 135 of Bombay Police Act. Interestingly, even Mangal Yadav has not been arrested so far nor any anticipatory bail application has been granted to him.
