Rampur, 28th Feb. 
A court in Rampur, Uttar Pradesh, has declared former Member of Parliament and renowned actor Jaya Prada as an “absconder” in connection with two cases of election code violations. The court directed the police to arrest her and present her before it on March 6.

Senior prosecution officer Amarnath Tiwari stated that Jaya Prada faces charges of violating the Model Code of Conduct during the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, with cases registered against her at Kemari and Swar police stations. The incidents allegedly occurred while she was contesting as the BJP candidate from Rampur, ultimately losing to Azam Khan of the Samajwadi Party.

Despite repeated summons from the special MP-MLA court, Jaya Prada failed to appear. Subsequently, non-bailable warrants were issued against her seven times, but she remained elusive, with her known mobile numbers reportedly switched off.

In response to the police’s acknowledgment of her evasion, Judge Shobhit Bansal declared Jaya Prada an absconder. The Superintendent of Police of Rampur was instructed to assemble a team, led by a circle officer, to apprehend her and present her in court on March 6 for the next hearing.
