Highlight Story


A day after his win in MCD elections, BJP councillor Madhav Prasad, accused of stabbing a party worker to death, was on Thursday remanded back in judicial custody for 14 days.

Prasad, who was re-elected as councillor from Sangam Park, surrendered before the court of additional sessions judge AK Chawla after his interim bail expired on Wednesday.

The court remanded him in judicial custody as neither did he seek extension of his interim bail nor did he apply for a regular bail.

Prasad, 47, was arrested on April 11 along with his accomplice Manoj Bhagat and Anil Yadav for allegedly stabbing party worker Jai Prakash to death at Azadpur railway station.

He was granted interim bail on April 13 on the ground that he was contesting municipal elections and that political vendetta could not be ruled out.

Prasad claimed it is a "politically motivated case" and that he has been falsely accused of the crime.
