RJD MLA, charged with rape, suspended from party

The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) on Sunday suspended controversial legislator Rajballabh Yadav, who has been charged with raping a minor girl last week, from the party.

Besides the party action, Nawada MLA Rajballabh faces an imminent arrest after DIG, Central Range, Shalin asked the police to book the RJD legislator under Sections 376 (rape), 420 (cheating) and other sections related to protection of children from sexual offences act.

The police action follows after Shalin found the charges levelled against the legislator true.

“The 15-year-old victim had lodged an FIR against the MLA on February 9 charging him with repeatedly sexually exploiting her after an elderly woman sold her for Rs 30,000 to the legislator,” said a senior police official. The DIG has ordered that the accused be arrested without any delay.
