Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday arrested former Jharkhand minister Harinarayan Rai and his wife from Deoghar, on Wednesday in an out of proportion assets case. The two had failed to get any respite from Jharkhand High Court against the special CBI court, sentenced of five years imprisonment in the case.
The Rai was on bail from the High Court during the uncertainty of the appeal, which was rejected on November 4. The HC had also maintained the decision of the CBI court against him.
Rai and his wife Sushila Devi will now be sent back to jail on Thursday. Rai, his wife and brother Sanjay Kumar Rai were condemned to five years imprisonment each in December 2016, in a Rs 1.46 crore excessive assets case.
