NEW DELHI: Bihar’s strongman turned politician and MLA from Mokama, Anant Singh who was on the run from the police, surrendered himself at Saket district court in Delhi, on Friday.
Singh, who is also known as ‘Chhote Sarkar’ among people from his constituency because of his lavish lifestyle and muscle power, had fled his official residence last Saturday night, hours before the Patna police raided his house.
He was wanted in the case of recovery of an AK 47 rifle with ammunition from his ancestral house at Ladma in Barh PS limits on August 16.
The case has been lodged named against the MLA under relevant sections of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act-2019 (UAPA) and the Arms and Explosives Act.
Singh is the first man from Bihar who has been booked under the UAPA, which nullifies the chance of getting anticipatory bail.
Singh a fortnight ago was also summoned by the police for giving samples of his voice in connection with a viral audio clip in which a person suspected to be an MLA, was heard planning a murder with a shooter.
According to sources, a team of Delhi police may bring Anant Singh to the Barh court in Patna soon.
Rural SP KK Mishra told the media that Bihar police will be leaving on Friday to take the MLA on transit remand.
Altogether 200 cops were deployed, divided into 11 teams and led by two IPS officers to track down the absconding MLA. Singh has been elected three times before from Mokama.
