PATNA: Authorities in Bihar today issued arrest warrant against suspended JD-U legislator Manorama Devi and also sealed her house in Gaya for violating the liquor ban imposed by the state government.

Both her son Rocky Yadav and husband Bindi Yadav have already been arrested and sent to jail in connection with the killing incident which has trigged huge protests across Bihar and earned a very bad name for the ruling Nitish Kumar government.
The arrest warrant was issued against the legislator after some eight liquor bottles were recovered from her home during a raid conducted by police on Monday where the police had gone looking for her absconding son.
Keeping liquor bottles are punishable offence in Bihar now declared a ‘dry’ state, inviting jail term up to 10 years.
