Nagarik Unmukti Party lawmaker Arun Chaudhary, who was arrested from Kohalpur of Banke on Thursday, has been sent to jail.
He was produced before the Kailali District Court on Friday.
Around 12 years ago, the Kailali District Court had sentenced Chaudhary to six months in jail for torching a tractor. He was sent to the jail as per the same order.
Chaudhary was apprehended while he was hiding in Chisapani area of Baijanath Rural Municipality-1, Banke.
He was elected as a member of the House of Representatives from Kailali-2 by securing 21, 871 votes.
Police said that Chaudhary was nabbed as he has yet to serve the jail term associated with a 12-year-old arson case.
