BJP MLA’s son held in Bihar for consuming liquor

Patna: The son of a BJP MLA was arrested in Bihar’s Siwan district on Monday for consuming liquor in violation of prohibition law, police said.

Vikas Kumar, son of Siwan MLA Vyasdeo Prasad, was taken into custody along with three friends.

“A police team checking vehicles near the Uttar Pradesh border arrested the four for consuming alcohol and recovered two bottles of liquor from Vikas Kumar’s vehicle,” said Siwan Superintendent of Police Navin Chandra Jha.

In April, Rahul Kumar, son of Gaya Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Hari Manjhi, was arrested for consuming liquor.

The BJP and Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal-United are allies in Bihar. Complete prohibition was imposed in the state on April 5, 2016.
