Patna: A minor girl who was allegedly raped by suspended RJD MLA Raj Ballabh Yadav has expressed concern for her and her family's safety after the accused was released on bail recently. The Bihar government has appealed against the bail order in the Supreme Court.

The girl has expressed her anxiety in a message to reporters, saying she and her family were "living in fear" after the release of Yadav.

"He (Yadav) is out of jail...I am scared and afraid for my family. What will happen to them? I am already dead after what happened to me. I have nothing more to lose," said the Nalanda schoolgirl in a WhatsApp message to reporters.

She said she was scared that her family might be "eliminated", along with her, after the Patna High Court granted bail to Yadav on September 30.

The girl, who had cleared the matriculation examination earlier this year, was allegedly raped by Yadav, the lawmaker from Nawada, and has since been living in trauma.

She had appeared for the matriculation examination after the state school examination board facilitated her to write the papers at a secluded centre due to fear of humiliation.

She cleared the examination with first division.

Meanwhile, the Nitish Kumar government on Wednesday moved the Supreme Court, challenging the bail granted to Yadav by the Patna High Court.

The Apex Court is scheduled to hear the matter on October 7.

Yadav had surrendered before a local court in March in connection with the incident.
