  • Fodder Scam Case CBI Special Court Defers Judgement Against Former Bihar CM Lalu Yadav and Jagannath Mishra

Ranchi: Former Bihar chief minister and RJD president Lalu Prasad was on Saturday admitted to Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) for the treatment of piles-related problems. Lalu will not be court during the verdict as he is unwell and in the hospital for the past three days.

The fodder scam has cost Lalu Prasad Yadav his political career.

The order had been passed following the information given by RIMS administration that there is a separate prisoner's ward for those who are referred from Birsa Munda Central Jail; still they were pressurised to shift them into VIP cottages. Another former Chief Minister Jagannath Mishra and 30 others are co-accused in this case.

Hearing in the fodder case is over counterfeit withdrawals of Rs 3.13 crore from the Dumka treasury between December 1995 and January 1996.

The special CBI court had on Friday postponed the judgement in view of the Lalu Prasad's counsel filing a petition under 319 CrPC asking the then three officials of the Accountant General (in the 1990s) be made a party to the case.

A total of six cases were lodged against Lalu Prasad out of which he has been convicted in three cases.

Earlier, Lalu's elder son and former Bihar Health Minister Tej Pratap along with hundreds of RJD supporters thronged RIMS after the news was flashed in the media that the RJD chief was being admitted there.

The fifth case relating to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 139 crore from the Doranda treasury in Ranchi is pending with the court. He is now serving a prison term of 3.5 years following his conviction in the Deoghar treasury case on December 23 last year.

The Fodder scandal is of over Rs 900-crore that is related to illegal withdrawal of money from government treasury in different districts in the Animal Husbandry department in undivided Bihar in the 1990s when RJD was in power in the state.
