Fodder scam: Lalu's sentencing deferred to Thursday

Fodder scam: Lalu's sentencing deferred to Thursday

Meanwhile, anticipating ruckus created by RJD workers after Prasad will be sentenced by the court in fodder scam case RC64A/96 on Wednesday, Ranchi Police has beefed up security on the court premises to avoid any untoward incident.

The court had acquitted six others, including another former chief minister, Jagannath Mishra.

"Statements were issued because we are planning to challenge the verdict in the high court", he added.

This case pertains to alleged fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 89.27 lakh from Deoghar Treasury between 1991 and 1994.

According to reports, the special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) judge Shivpal Singh arrived in the court at around 11 am. He added that "the court has made a decision to hear the case in alphabetical order".

Kumar filed petition in three different courts requesting them to take his client in judicial custody in RC 68A/96, RC38A/96 and RC47A/96.




The CBI court had on December 23 convicted Lalu Prasad and 15 others in the case relating to the multi-million-rupee scam.

Tejashwi Yadav is leader of opposition in the Bihar Assembly. However, the lawyers would not attend the court after paying condolences to the dead, the RJD chief's lawyer told reporters.

However, the jail authorities have allowed only three persons, decided by Prasad himself, to meet him in a week. Overall, the fodder scam is the fraudulent withdrawal of more than Rs 900 crore from the Chaibasa treasury for almost 20 years. "Perhaps it's time, Lalu Prasad changed his party's election symbol from lantern to LED bulb", he said.

Lalu's two sons, Tejashwi and Tej Pratap, are likely to run the party from now on.

His wife and former Chief Minister of Bihar Rabri Devi has chosen to stay back in Patna when the punishment is announced.
