Rape accused RJD MLA to remain in jail

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday cancelled the bail of Rashtriya Janata Dal MLA Rajballav Yadav accused of raping a minor girl.

A bench of Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice Abhay Manohar Sapre asked whether Yadav was already "released" following the bail granted by Patna High Court earlier. 

When the apex court was informed that he was not released, the bench said: "Let him remain in jail."

The court order came as it allowed the Bihar government's plea challenging the bail.
