Bharatiya Janata Party Leader Dayashankar Singh was released from Mau district jail on Sunday after getting bail the day before. Meanwhile, the Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) has said that they will move the High Court to challenge the bail. After being released from the Mau jail, where he had been imprisoned, Singh said that he will likely visit his wife and daughter in Lucknow. He said that his family had suffered a lot of trauma, after he came under fire for making derogatory remarks, against the BSP chief.
"My wife and daughter are not well, will go to Lucknow straight away, to meet my family”, told to media. Dayashankar was granted bail on Saturday. The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) dubbed the court order as 'not in keeping with law' and said it will be challenged in Allahabad High Court.
The former BJP MLA was arrested on July 29 from Bihar's Buxar town after remaining absconding for about 10 days. Later, he was produced before the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate in Mau, which sent him to 14-day judicial custody.
The BSP had lodged an FIR against Singh for comparing its party supremo Mayawati to a 'prostitute.' His comments led to a furore in the Parliament, forcing the BJP to remove him as the party's UP Vice President.
