The girl has expressed her anxiety in a message to reporters, saying she and her family were "living in fear" after the release of Yadav.

"He (Yadav) is out of jail...I am scared and afraid for my family. What will happen to them? I am already dead after what happened to me. I have nothing more to lose," said the Nalanda schoolgirl in a WhatsApp message to reporters.

She said she was scared that her family might be "eliminated", along with her, after the Patna High Court granted bail to Yadav on 30 September.

The girl, who had cleared the matriculation examination earlier this year, was allegedly raped by Yadav, the RJD MLA from Nawada, and has been living in trauma since the sordid event.

She had appeared for the matriculation examination after the state school examination board facilitated her to write the papers at a secluded centre due to fear of humiliation.

She cleared the examination in first division.

Meanwhile, The Nitish Kumar government on Wednesday moved the Supreme Court, challenging the bail granted to Yadav by the Patna High Court.

The apex court is scheduled to hear the matter on 7 October.

Yadav had surrendered before a local court in March in connection with the incident.
