Mokama MLA Anant Singh flees home fearing arrest post recovery of AK-47
THE DEADLIER WEAPON WAS RECOVERED FROM HIS ANCESTRAL HOME DURING RAIDS ON FRIDAY
PATNA: A legislator in Bihar has gone into hiding fearing his arrest after recovery of an AK-47 rifle, live cartridges and some grenades from his home during the hour-long raid on Friday.
The independent legislator Anant Singh went underground shortly after the police registered a case under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) on Saturday.
Reports quoting police sources and local media said the Singh was found missing from his home when a team of police raided his home shortly past midnight on Saturday looking for him.
“He (legislator) was not found at his home and when we inquired from his wife about his whereabouts, she refused to divulge anything,” a senior police official KK Mishra told the media on Sunday.
The MLA who began his political career as a JD-U legislator from Mokama in 2005 blames his political rivals for all these controversies.
“I have never visited my ancestral home in the past 14 years and is not aware of how these weapons reached my home,” he alleged talking to the media on Saturday shortly before fleeing the scene.
He also alleged that the ruling party has gone against him right since his wife fought elections against JD-U candidate Lalan Singh from Munger. However, his wife lost the elections under the massive Narendra Modi wave.
