RJD chief Lalu Prasad was arrested on Wednesday for alleged violation of the model code of conduct but was granted bail and released soon after.
Prasad was arrested on the dais for an election meeting in Garwah, said district superintendent of police Saket Kumar Singh.
The police had lodged an FIR against Prasad and his pilot after his helicopter landed at the venue of an election meeting on April 7 instead of the nearby helipad.
The FIR was lodged by block development officer Subhas Singh.
The Election Commission had served a notice to Prasad for violating the model code.
“The Election Commission issued the notice yesterday and asked him (Lalu Prasad) to reply by 4 pm tomorrow,” Assistant Chief Electoral Officer A K Sinha, told PTI in Garwah on Wednesday.
