The protest by Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leaders, demanding the arrest of JD(U) MLA Pappu Pandey, accused in the Gopalganj triple murder case, has boomeranged for the party. A case has been registered at the Patna secretariat police station against 92 persons, including top RJD leaders, for violating the lockdown.

A police official said on Saturday, a case has been registered against 92 people, including top RJD leaders, for trying to go to Gopalganj with their convoy from 10 Circular Road without permission of the administration and violating the lockdown.

The official said that an FIR has been lodged at Secretariat police station late Friday against RJD state president Jagdanand Singh, former minister and MLA Abdul Bari Siddiqui, including 32 nominated and 60 unknown RJD activists.

Tejashwi Yadav with other RJD MLAs were stopped by the police on Friday from marching to Gopalganj, demanding the arrest of MLA Pappu Pandey. This was followed by a high-voltage drama for several hours outside the residence of former chief minister Rabri Devi.

An FIR has been lodged in Hathua police station of Gopalganj against 13 nominated and 60 unknown RJD workers, including RJD MLA Mohammad Nemtullah and district RJD president Rajesh Kushwaha from Barauli assembly constituency of Gopalganj.

Confirming this, Gopalganj Superintendent of Police Manoj Kumar Tiwari said that they are accused of violating the lockdown. All these people were sitting on a dharna in Roopanchak village on Friday.
