The court ofthe chief judicial magistrate in Jamui district in Biharhas issued an order toattach property ofabsconding former unionminister and Rashtriya Janata Dalmember of Parliament Jaiprakash Narain Yadav inthe case ofa non-bailable arrest warrant against him .

Yadav, considered close toRJDchief and Railway MinisterLalu Prasad Yadav, was forced to resign from the Manmohan Singh governmentin November.

Anon-bailable warrantwas issued against him for securing illegal release of his brother and RJD nominee Vijay Prakash from police custody. His anticipatory bail application was rejected by a court in Jamui and later by the Patna high court.

An arrest warrant was issued against him after the incident but he has yet to surrender.

The CJM court order has come ona day when the Patna high court reserved its order on the criminal writ petition of absconding Jaiprakash Narain Yadav, challenging the issuance of non-bailable arrest warrant against him by a court in Jamui, for a future date.

Last week, the police raided the minister's house twice and some also other places under Barhat police station inJamui to arrest him in the light of an observation made by the Jamui court.
