Suspended JDU MLA Sarfaraz Alam Arrested For Misbehaving With Couple On Train

Patna: Jan 24;  A day after Bihar's ruling Janata Dal-United (JD-U) suspended its legislator for allegedly misbehaving with a couple on a running train, the Government Railway Police (GRP) arrested him on Sunday, police said.

"JD-U legislator Sarfaraj Alam was arrested at the GRP station here after he was questioned," a GRP official said.

Officials said the charges against Sarfaraj were found to be true.

The JD-U on Saturday suspended Sarfaraj, saying his conduct brought a "bad name to the party".

"Top party leadership, including JD-U president Sharad Yadav and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, met here and decided to suspend Sarfaraj for his behaviour and bad conduct. The incident has given a bad name to the party," state JD-U president Vashishtha Narain Singh told the media here.

Alam allegedly misbehaved with the couple aboard the Delhi-Guwahati Rajdhani Express.

RJD chief Lalu Prasad also favoured action against Alam. The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) is part of the ruling Grand Alliance in Bihar.
