Accused Munna Yadav is still at large

KARAN and Arjun, accused sons of ‘absconding’ BJP leader and Chairman of Maharashtra State Construction Workers Welfare Board Munna alias Omprakash Yadav in an attempt-to-murder case finally surrendered at Dhantoli Police Station on Saturday. Cops produced them before the court and obtained four-day remand for their custodial interrogation.

Munna Yadav, his wife Laxmi, sons Karan and Arjun and his other family members were booked after they allegedly unleashed an attack against their kin Papa Yadav, his sister Manju, Mangal Yadav, his brother Gabbar, and others near Ajni Chowk over bursting of crackers in October. Munna’s son Karan and his friends were bursting crackers in front of Manju’s house. The group clash started after Avdhesh alias Papa Yadav asked Karan to burst crackers somewhere else. Mangal and his brother Gabbar, who had come to help Papa and his sister, were seriously injured in the attack and were rushed to government Medical College & Hospital.

Dhantoli Police had registered an offence under Sections 452, 307, 323, 324, 325, 141, 143, 147, 148, 149 of the Indian Penal Code read with sub-sections 4, 25 of Arms Act and 135 of Bombay Police Act against Munna Yadav and his entire family. Since then, Munna Yadav and his two sons -- Karan and Arjun -- were absconding.

Sessions Court had rejected anticipatory bail of Munna Yadav and his family. Munna Yadav then had knocked the doors of Nagpur bench of the Bombay High Court seeking anticipatory bail. Justice V M Deshpande while hearing the plea indicated that he was not in favour of granting anticipatory bail to Munna Yadav after which he (Munna Yadav) sought permission to withdraw the same which was duly granted. Munna’s wife and BJP corporator Laxmi Yadav had already obtained anticipatory bail from the High Court. The High Court had also allowed the pre-arrest bail of Munna’s younger brother Jaggu Yadav as his name had not figured in the FIR.

Tara Omprakash Yadav (40) had also lodged a counter complaint against Mangal Yadav, Papa Yadav, Gabbar Yadav, Sagar Yadav and Manju Yadav that they had picked a quarrel with Karan Yadav and Arjun Yadav over the issue of bursting of crackers and allegedly assaulted them. On the basis of her complaint, police had registered an offence under Sections 141, 143, 147, 148, 149, 323, 324 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code read with sub-sections 4, 25 of Arms Act and 135 of Bombay Police Act. Accused Munna Yadav, against whom more than 11 criminal cases were already registered at different police stations, is still at large.
