ANI Photo | “Couldn’t appear in court earlier due to poor health,” says Jaya Prada; court cancels non-bailable warrant against her

Former MP from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and film actress Jaya Prada appeared in court in connection with the case of violation of the code of conduct on Monday. She said that she has always been a law-abiding citizen, and due to health issues, she could not come to court. Her lawyer said that the non-bailable warrant (NBW) was cancelled against her.
Jaya Prada said, “I have been MP from Rampur twice. Today I have got relief from the court. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amit Shah and Yogi Adityanath have empowered the women of the country. This is a small case, and I ask for forgiveness from the court. Those who wanted to defame me could not succeed. The case is in court. I don’t want to say much about it. Due to poor health, I could not appear in the court earlier. I have high sugar, blood pressure, and there was the possibility of kidney ailments due to which I could not appear in court.”
She further said that she was unwell and would continue coming to court.
Advocate Praveen said, “A news was spread on February 27 that she was absconding, which is fake news. She was unable to appear due to health issues. CrPC order 82 was started, which has now been cancelled. The non-bailable warrant (NBW) has also been cancelled. This case will now move on as normal case.”
Jaya Prada had been considered ‘absconding’ in two cases related to the violation of the code of conduct. The decision came after Jaya Prada failed to appear for a court hearing, despite repeated notices and non-bailable warrants against her.
The MP/MLA court in Rampur issued CrPC order 82 for her non-appearance even after issuing a non-bailable warrant (NBW) several times, regarding which Senior Prosecution Officer Amarnath Tiwari said that the 2019 election code of conduct case against Jayaprada was registered in the court of the Special MP/MLA Court, Rampur, in Kemri police station and Swar police station.
MP/MLA Magistrate Court Judge Shobhit Bansal issued NBW to Jaya Prada due to her non-appearance in court on the previous dates.
The report sent by Inspector Ranji Trivedi noted that the accused was protecting herself and her mobile was switched off. Following this, a demand was made in court to take action under Section 82 CrPC against the accused, Jaya Prada. The order has been made and the next date has been fixed as March 6
