Controversial RJD MP Sadhu Yadav bail petition in a case of forgery and cheating was on Tuesday adjourned till Thursday by the Patna High Court.
Justice Mridula Mishra accepted the prayer of Yadav's lawyer Ganesh Prasad Singh seeking more time and adjourned the hearing of the petition.
Faced with the grim prospect of attachment of his property, Yadav, the Lok Sabha member from Gopalganj, had on December 4 surrendered before Judge Muni Lal Paswan, in-charge of vigilance cases. Paswan remanded him to judicial custody.
The special vigilance court had turned down his bail application on December 12 and extended his judicial remand till December 22. The case of forgery and cheating is an offshoot of the multi-crore rupee flood relief scam.
Yadav is currently being held at the high-security Beur jail in Patna.
The vigilance bureau had on September 5 registered a case under various sections of the Indian Penal Code related to forgery and cheating against Yadav, alleging he had falsified documents to prove that Rs 6 lakh in his account at the Patna secretariat branch of the State Bank of India had come from the sale of a vehicle that was not his.
