In Muzaffarpur, 27 out of 29 candidates lost their deposits, the highest number for any constituency in the state. Only BJP's Ajay Sahni, who won, and Congress' Akhilesh Prasad Singh, who was the runner-up, were spared the ignominy.
At seven, the lowest number of lost deposits was reported from Kishanganj but it was primarily because only nine candidates were in the fray.
As per party-wise data, chief minister Nitish Kumar's JD(U) lost its deposits in 23 out of the 38 seats it had contested in the state and also saw its tally plummet to only two from 22 in 2009.
