An alert has been sounded across Bihar for the arrest of Union Minister Jaiprakash Narain Yadav, his brother and Rashtriya Janata Dal candidate from Jamui, Vijay Prakash, and three others, who have been eluding the police dragnet after a district court issued non-bailable warrants of arrest against them on Monday.

Superintendent of Police, Jamui, Arvind Kumar told PTI that he had written to his counterparts in all 38 districts of Bihar to arrest the union minister of state for water resource development and four others if they were sighted in their area of jurisdiction.

Kumar said he had requested the SPs of adjoining Munger, Bhagalpur, Lakhisarai and Sheikhpura districts to be particularly vigilant to arrest the union minister and others.

In-charge Chief Judicial Magistrate of Jamui R K Srivastava had on Monday issued NBWs against Yadav, Prakash, suspended officer in-charge of Khaira police station Mukteshwar Prasad, Independent candidate from Jamui, Ashok Ram, and an RJD worker Batoli Yadav for the "illegal escape" of Prakash from police custody on the night of October 18.

Jaiprakash and others were accused of facilitating the "escape" of Vijay Prakash after he was arrested with a rifle, ammunition, a detonator, Rs 6.68 lakh in cash and liquor bottles during the polling in the constituency on October 18.

A case was registered under sections 218, 225 and 120 (b) and 409 of Indian Penal Code against Yadav for helping in the "escape" of Vijay Prakash arrested under non-bailable sections of the Indian Penal Code and Arms Act.
