Former RJD MP Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav was directed by a Delhi court on Wednesday to vacate the government allotted bungalow by April 15.

District Judge S. P. Garg directed the former Madhepura MP, convicted in the Ajit Sarkar murder case, to vacate the K. G. Marg government residence allotted to him.

The court also directed Mr. Yadav to clear by April 15 the dues of Rs. 2.5 Lakh accrued on him for using the premises.

Mr. Yadav filed an application in the court seeking direction to the Urban Development Ministry to allow him to stay at the government residence.

The Urban Development Ministry had asked Mr. Yadav’s wife, Ranjeet Ranjan to vacate the place as they were not able to deposit the dues till 2 February.

The Yadavs had paid Rs. two lakh but there still remained dues of Rs. 2.5 lakhs, which the court directed them to clear before vacating the premises.
