BJP-JD (U) Fallout: BJP Leaders court arrest in Patna

Top BJP leaders courted arrest in Patna on Tuesday during a bandh to protest against the JD (U)'s decision to end their 17-year alliance with them. Ravi Shankar Prasad, Shahnawaz Hussain and Sushil Kumar Modi were among the top BJP leaders who courted arrest. Two days after the split of BJP and JD (U), the principal opposition party observed a 'bandh' across Bihar on Tuesday which turned violent between the friends-turned-foes, leaving many injured.
