Veteran film actress and former Member of Parliament Jaya Prada has landed in trouble. A court in the Uttar Pradesh district has asked the actor-politician to appear before it on November 17 in connection with a case of violation of the Model Code of Conduct during the 2019 Lok Sabha poll campaign. The court also said that a non-arrest warrant issued would continue against her earlier functioning.
Prosecution officer Amarnath Tiwari said on Thursday that the actress did not appear before the court on November 8 despite the non-bailable warrant being issued against her.
The court has now continued the operation of the NBW and posted the matter on November 17 for further hearing, he said.
The case against Jaya Prada was registered at the Swar police station here during the 2019 election campaign.
He is pending before the court of MP-MLA of Rampur.
Jaya Prada contested the 2019 Lok Sabha polls from Rampur as a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) nominee and attacked a road after the Model Code of Conduct came into effect.
