A two-term former RJD MLA Rajendra Prasad Yadav was today convicted by a local court for the death of a woman while firing during a victory rally.

Fast-track court judge Achyutanand Upadhyay found Yadav guilty of killing Mintoo Kumari while firing during his victory rally as RJD MLA from Atari at Dariapur village in February 2005.

Upadhyay fixed June 22 for pronouncing the quantum of punishment.

Yadav had won the elections twice from Atari on RJD ticket in 2000 and February 2005. He lost in November 2005 when NDA government came to power.
