Former Jharkhand minister and Congress MLA Yogendra Sao was on Sunday arrested in Delhi following warrants against him in connection with allegedly floating an ultra outfit.
A team of Jharkhand Crime Investigation Department arrested Sao after obtaining warrants from a Hazaribagh court on September 14.
Inspector General of Police Anurag Gupta said, Yogendra Sao was arrested by the CID team in the national capital and would be produced before a magistrate in Delhi with a request to take him in transit remand.
The former minister had on September 12 resigned from the Hemant Soren government after the head of the “Jharkhand Tiger” Raj Kumar Gupta accused Sao of floating the outfit.
Two days later Sub-divisional Judicial Magistrate Akhilesh issued the warrants.
In his statement recorded under section 164 before a judicial magistrate recently, the arrested ‘ultra’ accused Sao of floating JT.
