Patna: Patna police today arrested Madhepura MP Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav in a two-month case of creating law and order problem here.

The MP was arrested from his residence at Mandiri area in Patna after acquiring arrest warrant from the CJM's court, Deputy Superintendent of Police Kailash Prasad told PTI tonight.

The case in which the Janadhikar Party MP was arrested was registered with Gandhi Maidan police station in January this year.
