Fodder scam: Verdict in fourth case against Lalu Yadav today

Fodder scam: Verdict in fourth case against Lalu Yadav today”

A special CBI court in Ranchi on Thursday deferred the judgment in another fodder scam case involving Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, who has already been convicted in three other cases. Because of his three convictions so far in this case, he had to step down from the post of Bihar Chief Minister in 1997, lose his Lok Sabha seat and was also barred from contesting elections for six years following the sentencing due to an earlier Supreme Court order.

Any final call on the judgment will be taken only after that.

The case, RC38A/96, pertains to the fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 3.13 crore from December 1995 to January 1996 from the Dumka treasury when Lalu was chief minister of Bihar. The hearing in the case was completed on March 5. During the hearing, the court of special judge Shivpal Singh had also directed the CBI to seek sanction for prosecution against "then Deputy Commissioner of Dumka, Anjani Kumar Singh".

He now faces two other cases, one in Ranchi and one in Patna after Patna's High Court transferred the probe to Central Bureau of Investigation.

The fifth case related to fradulent withdrawal of Rs 139 crore from treasury of Doranda in Ranchi is pending with the court.

Apart from Lalu, there are nearly thirty other persons who have been accused in this case.

Lalu Yadav was first convicted in a fodder scam case in 2013 and was awarded five years' imprisonment.

Earlier on January 6 this year, a special CBI court had sentenced Prasad to three-and-a-half years in jail and fined Rs 10 lakh in a fodder scam case relating to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 89.27 lakh from the Deoghar Treasury 21 years ago. Prasad has been in Birsa Munda jail at Ranchi since December 23 a year ago after being convicted in the second case pertaining to illegal withdrawal of money from Deogarh treasury.
