New Delhi: Absconding independent legislator Anant Singh, after dodging arrest for more than a week, surrendered himself before a court in Delhi saying he did not trust Bihar police that was acting at the behest of some very powerful leaders in the ruling Janata Dal – U.

A court in Barh last Tuesday had issued an arrest warrant against the criminal-turned-politician Anant Singh, a well-known name in the world of crime in Barh-Mokama area, following recovery of an AK-47 rifle and a hand grenade from his home during a police raid last week.

However, sensing impending arrest, Singh went into hiding though later he released two cell-phone videos of himself saying he was not afraid of being arrested but had no faith in the Bihar police that was acting at the behest of senior JD-U leaders Lallan Singh, Neeraj Kumar, and Superintendent of Police (SP) Lipi Singh.

"These people, with the help of some of my relatives, planted the rifle and the hand grenade at my home that the police discovered during the raid. I don't trust any of these politicians or the police so I will be surrendering only before a court and not in a police station," the MLA had said in one of the videos released by him.

As reported, a case against Singh was filed under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act following the recovery of arms from his home last week. This led to the filing of an FIR and the subsequent issue of an arrest warrant against him.
