The CBI, which solicited approval from a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi to register its response to the bail plea of Lalu Yadav, contended that the RJD leader is expected to get involved in political activities and put to wrong use the grant of bail ahead of upcoming Lok Sabha polls. The agency also alleged that Lalu has been involved in political activities from the hospital ward he is been admitted to for the last eight months.
