A local court, on Thursday, summoned RJD chief Lalu Prasad, his wife and Leader of the Opposition Rabri Devi, and LJP president Ramvilas Paswan in connection with a complaint charging them with causing destruction to public property during a state-wide bandh on January six.

Chief Judicial Magistrate Ramesh Malviya took cognisance of the complaint filed by advocate Sudhir Ojha who alleged that widespread destruction was caused to the public property in Muzaffarpur town and elsewhere during the shutdown called by the leaders.

Ojha in his complaint filed on January 24 had also alleged that RJD-LJP activists took law into their hands and misbehaved with him while enforcing the call for bandh against price rise.

The Magistrate asked Prasad, Rabri Devi, Paswan, besides Muzaffarpur district RJD president Mithilesh Prasad Yadav and his LJP counterpart Md Jamal to appear in person before the court on July 24.
