Expelled BJP leader Dayashankar Singh was released from jail on Sunday morning after a court granted him bail on two bonds of Rs 50,000 each.
Dayashankar Singh was arrested by the UP STF in a joint operation with Bihar police from Buxar on Friday. Dayashankar Singh originally belongs to Buxar and was staying with a relative at Sugar Mill Colony in Buxar.
ADG (law and order) Daljit Chaudhary told reporters that the UP STF had been tracking Dayashankar Singh’s movement through a mobile phone being used by one of his close friends. He is likely to be brought to Lucknow on Saturday and produced before the court.
Dayashankar Singh was absconding since July 21 when a video clip in which he was seen making derogatory remarks against BSP president Mayawati went viral on the social media. Singh had labelled Mayawati 'worse than a prostitute', claiming that she sold poll tickets to the highest bidder.
