FIRs were registered on Monday against RJD chief Lalu Prasad and his wife Rabri Devi for allegedly violating the model code of conduct by taking their security guards inside a booth of the Digha Assembly constituency, in Patna, to cast votes in the Bihar Assembly polls.

The FIRs for violating the model code of conduct were registered by Digha Block Development Officer Ashok Kumar at the Patna Airport police station against Lalu and Rabri Devi.

The Returning Officer for the Digha Assembly constituency Maqsood Alam said that according to the rules, a VIP was not allowed to take bodyguards or commandos within a radius of 100 metre of a booth.

Earlier, Lalu and Rabri Devi along with son Tejpratap and daughter Ragini drove to booth 18 at the Veterinary College here and entered with the security personnel in tow.

After casting his vote, Lalu left for campaigning and refused to comment.
