A district court in Araria, Bihar court had issued a non-bailable warrant (NBA) against him.
The HC has also set the next hearing date on June 18. The court has also directed the state to file a petition within four weeks.

In his complaint, Singh also sent by courier counterfoils of the deposits of Rs 300 twice and Rs 400 in the Baba's account at the Punjab and National Bank to his Delhi address as sought.
In his protection, Nirmal Baba through one of his follower filled an application in Patna HC seeking to quash NBW issued by the lower court.
