RJD leader and former Bihar Chief Minister Rabri Devi on Monday surrender before a Chapra court in connection with a case charging her with making abusive remarks against former state JD(U) president Rajiv Ranjan Singh and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

The leader of opposition in the Bihar Assembly surrendered before the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Y N Singh who granted her regular bail.

The court on May 6 had issued non-bailable warrant of arrest against Rabri Devi for her alleged remarks against Rajiv Rajan Singh alias Lalan and Kumar during electioneering for the 2009 Lok Sabha polls at Garkha for drumming up support for her husband and RJD chief Lalu Prasad from Saran parliamentary constituency.

Sanjiv Sekhar, the then Sub-divisional officer, had filed the case against Rabri Devi after she had made the alleged uncharitable utterances.
