Sinha was on June 3 arrested along with 300 party workers for allegedly assaulting a Jharkhand State Electricity Board official over power crisis in the state.

Meanwhile, there are reports that BJP patriarch LK Advani will be visiting him in the jail on Tuesday.

Earlier on Friday, Sinha was injured inside the Hazaribagh jail where he is presently lodged.

Two emissaries of BJP president and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh - Rajiv Pratap Rudy and Shahnawaz Hussain - had met Sinha and appealed to him to obtain bail.

Sinha, 76, admitted before the media of instructing the party's women activists to tie up JSEB's Hazaribagh branch General Manager Dhanesh Jha using a rope.

"Yes, I have asked them to tie hands of the GM as women are the worst sufferers for not getting power. Their children's education is also suffering," Sinha said.

According to the police, Sinha along with around 300 BJP activists including 50 women, locked office of JSEB’s Hazaribagh unit and staged a sit-in.
