Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) legislator Surender Yadav, who is accused of demanding money from a contractor and threatened him with dire consequences if he did not pay up, will also be arrested, the police said.
Patna Senior Superintendent of Police Vikas Vaibhav said the two have been charged in two separate criminal cases lodged against them.
