A Faizabad court today sentenced former BSP MP Mitrasen Yadav to seven years rigorous imprisonment in a case of embezzlement. Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Anil Shukla also imposed a fine of Rs 15,000 on him.
On Wednesday, Yadav, against whom NBW was issued for not appearing before the court, reached the court with his supporters. He was taken into custody by the police and after pronouncement of the sentence, sent to jail.

He alleged that the manager had committed a fraud by not depositing money earned from the field attached with the school.The Faizabad police investigated the case and filed chargesheet against Mitrasen under Section 420 and 409 of the IPC.
