CBI court issues notice to RJD's Tejashwi Yadav

CBI court issues notice to RJD's Tejashwi Yadav

The quantum of sentence was postponed due to the passing away of advocate Vindeshwari Prasad, as per reports.

Lalu Prasad's lawyer on Tuesday addressed reporters that they would bear down on minimum sentences in the case. On December 23, Lalu Prasad along with 15 others, was convicted in fodder scam and sent to jail in Ranchi.

In 2013, when the CBI court had convicted him for five years in a case related to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 37.5 crores from Chaibasa treasury, he had to spend more than two months in jail before he was set free. Petitions demanding to issue production warrant in other fodder scam cases pending in other courts for taking my client into judicial custody were also allowed by the concerned courts, he added.

"We are keeping our fingers crossed.let us see what decision the court takes today".

This led senior RJD leader and former union minister Raghuvansh Prasad Singh, who was present on the court premises, to say, "Jagannath Mishra ko bail aur Lalu ko jail... abhi yehi hai khel (bail for Mishra and jail for Lalu, this is the game now)..."

A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court had on December 23 found guilty the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) person-in-charge Lalu and 15 others in a case connecting to the multi-million-rupee fodder scam.

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