Fodder scam: Lalu Prasad to stay in jail as Jharkhand HC defers hearing on bail plea till November 27

The Jharkhand High Court on Friday deferring the hearing on the bail plea of RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav in a fodder scam case till November 27. The case pertains to the illegal withdrawal of funds from the Dumka treasury in the 1990s when he was the CM of undivided Bihar. He is facing 14 years jail term in the case.

The former Bihar CM was granted bail by the Jharkhand High Court last month in a fodder scam case related to the Chaibasa treasury. He, however, couldn’t walk out of jail as he is serving jail time in the Dumka treasury case.

A CBI court had in 2018 convicted Lalu in multiple fodder scam cases. He has been lodged in Ranchi’s Birsa Munda Jail since 2018.
