In a major reprieve to Congress leader Manish Tiwari, the Jharkhand high court on Friday stayed the "contempt of court" notice issued by special CBI court, Ranchi, for allegedly making adverse comments against the fodder scam judgment that convicted RJD chief Lalu Prasad on December 23 previous year.

The special CBI court in Ranchi will be delivering its judgment in another case of fodder scam on January 24. The Chaibasa treasury case pertains to embezzlement of over Rs 30 crore in the early 1990s and around 50 persons are accused in it. As many as 203 witnesses were produced by the CBI while the defense produced only 23 witnesses out of which 17 were of the RJD Chief.

The RJD leader's advocate Chittaranjan Sinha said the court will hear his petitions likely on January 19.
