Azamgarh: A local court on Wednesday sent sitting BSP MLA from Nizamabad Angad Yadav to jail here in connection with a two decade-old arms case.

The Arms Act case against Yadav was pending since 1980 and despite summons the MLA had not appeared before the court, prosecution sources said here.

The MLA was sent to jail by Additional Judicial Magistrate Apoorva Singh.

Yadav was denied a BSP ticket to contest the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls this time.
