The court had issued a non-bailable warrant against him on Monday. The politician, who is on a run, had filed a plea seeking a stay on his arrest on July 25. The court, in turn, has adjourned the hearing till 8th August. Dayashankar Singh, former UP Vice President of BJP, had created a controversy after using abusive language against BSP Supremo Mayawati. Singh’s was expelled from the BJP for his comments. Hundreds of BSP workers took to the streets to protest Singh’s abusive comments against Mayawati in Lucknow and various other towns of Uttar Pradesh.
Dayashankar Singh’s wife Swati filed an FIR against BSP workers for alleged ‘traumatisation’ of her daughter. The counter attack from Singh’s family led to a political slug-fest between BJP and BSP. While the family claimed that they have no idea about the leader’s whereabouts, some pictures have emerged that claim that Singh was last seen at Deoghar temple of Jharkhand on July 24. Singh had accused Mayawati of selling tickets for UP assembly polls and compared her to a prostitute.
