Rohini Acharya, daughter of former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) candidate from Saran Lok Sabha constituency, was booked for allegedly creating chaos at a polling booth in Bada Telpa. 

The FIR was lodged in the city police station by BJP worker Manoj Singh for allegedly creating uproar at Bada Telpa booth number 318,319 of Saran Lok Sabha constituency. Case number 349/2024 has been registered in Chapra Nagar police station under section 307,171C,188, ROP Act and all these are non-bailable sections, said the sources.

The development comes a day after the Saran Lok Sabha constituency witnessed several incidents of poll violence.

Post-poll violence in Saran

A day after a person was killed and two others were injured in post-poll violence in Bihar's Saran district, police on Wednesday conducted flag marches in several areas of the district to maintain law and order.
Saran DM Aman Samir said, "Security personnel are closely monitoring the Bada Telpa area near Bhikhari Thakur Chowk where the incident took place. Flag marches were conducted in several areas of the city."
As a precautionary measure, the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) has cancelled the Secondary Teacher Eligibility Test (STET) 2024 (first) examination, which was scheduled for May 22 and May 23 at four centres in Saran. The board said new dates for the exams at Saran centres will be announced soon.
The district police has transferred Ashwani Kumar Tiwari, in-charge of city police station, to a non-sensitive post for "dereliction of duty" following Tuesday's incident.
According to police, "An altercation broke out on Tuesday between BJP and RJD supporters over allegations of irregularities during polling a day earlier in the area, during which shots were fired. One Chandan Kumar was killed on the spot and two others were injured. The condition of the injured are reported to be stable."
Police have arrested two persons in connection with the case and recovered weapons and cartridges from them.
