Bihar Govt has nothing to do with Alam’s bail: JD (U)

Patna: The Janata Dal (United) on Monday said it had nothing to do with the bail of its MLA Sarfraz Alam, who allegedly misbehaved with a woman on a train, and slammed media for asking the government about it.

JD (U) spokesperson Ajay Alok said the media should refrain itself from asking ‘unnecessary’ questions regarding the case as it was now up to the court to decide.

“This is all judicial process in which government has no role. This is in the Constitution. If those sections were bailable then he will get bail from concerned court. Government has no role in it. Why are you asking government about it?,” he told ANI.

“Unnecessarily the media is asking such questions. Go and ask why Amit Shah was given bail when he charged with extortion and loot? How did Maya Kodnani get bail?,” he added.

The suspended JD (U) MLA, who was arrested for allegedly misbehaving with a Delhi-based couple onboard a Rajdhani Express on January 17, was released on bail late yesterday night.

Alam was interrogated for four hours on Saturday during which he admitted to have travelled by the Rajdhani Express, after having denied travelling by it earlier.

He, however, denied charges of misbehaving with a woman.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had last week suspended Alam from the party. (ANI)
