Home Law 'There is no danger except that you are convicted': Supreme Court rejects Lalu Prasad Yadav's bail plea in multi-crore fodder scam

‘There is no danger except that you are convicted’: Supreme Court rejects Lalu Prasad Yadav’s bail plea in multi-crore fodder scam

Convict Lalu told the Court that he could be released as he posed no threat.

The Supreme Court has dismissed RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav’s bail plea in three cases of the Fodder Scam. The convict was represented in the Court by senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal.

Convict Lalu told the Court that he could be released as he posed no threat. Sibal said, “If I am released on bail, I won’t run away. My appeal is not being heard. What is the danger if I am released on bail?” CJI Ranjan Gogoi, to this plea, retorted, “There is no danger except that you are convicted”.

The CBI, in an affidavit, had opposed Lalu’s bail plea. The agency has stated that the convict could seek bail on medical grounds but use it for political purposes. It stated further that Lalu had been conducting political activities from the hospital ward where he has been for the past 8 months.

“During the period in which the petitioner (Lalu Yadav) remained in hospital, he is not only granted a special paying ward with all facilities but he is virtually conducting his political activities from there which would be clear from the list of visitors,” the CBI said.

Lalu Prasad Yadav was found guilty in multiple cases pertaining to the Fodder Scam last year. Apart from the Fodder scam, Lalu and his son Tejashwi are accused in the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) scam as well.
