Lucknow, December 14 (TNA) The Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court has rejected the bail application of Indra Pratap alias Khabbu Tiwari, a BJP MLA from Gosaiganj Assembly in Ayodhya district. The former MLA was sentenced on October 18 by a sessions court in Ayodhya to five years in a 29-year-old criminal case.
While hearing the bail application filed along with the appeal, a single bench of Justice Sangeeta Chandra refused to grant bail to Khabbu Tiwari. Due to being convicted, the assembly membership of Indra Pratap alias Khabbu Tiwari has already been canceled.
