MP: Arrest Warrant Issued by Gwalior Court Against Former Bihar CM Lalu Yadav; Police Pursuing in Long-standing Case

Former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav is facing an arrest warrant issued by the MP-MLA Court in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, in connection with a 26-year-old case of arms smuggling. Yadav, accused in the case, has been declared absconding by the police, who are actively searching for him.

The revelation of this case has caused a stir in Madhya Pradesh's political circles, surprising both current leaders and locals alike. Despite being embroiled in this legal matter, Lalu Prasad Yadav has remained a prominent figure in national and Bihar politics over the past few decades. However, recent health issues led to a kidney transplant, marking a new chapter in his life.

The entire case is related to illegal purchase and sale of weapons and is pending for about 26 years. Gwalior's MP-MLA court had declared Lalu Prasad Yadav absconding in this case in 1998. According to the preliminary information coming out in this case, weapons and cartridges were fraudulently purchased from three arms companies of Gwalior between 1995 and 1997. 

The operator of a firm in UP had purchased these weapons and they were sold in Bihar at that time. Lalu Yadav's name was among the buyers, hence he has also been made an accused. In this case the police had declared him absconding.

While the Gwalior Police have refrained from commenting officially, several officers have confirmed the developments anonymously. Additionally, an advocate associated with the case has corroborated the police's findings, confirming Yadav's status as the accused former Chief Minister of Bihar.
