Rs 900 crores Fodder scam convict Lalu Prasad Yadav gets bail on two sureties of Rs. 50,000

Lalu Prasad Yadav has been convicted in four fodder scam cases, and this is the second case where he has got bail

Former Bihar chief minister and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav has been granted bail in the Deoghar treasury fodder scam case. The fodder scam convict was granted the bail by Jharkhand High Court on two sureties of ₹50,000.

Lalu Prasad Yadav was sentenced for three and a half years in the Deoghar treasury case, and he has already spent more than one and a half years in jail. But despite the bail, he will not be out of jail, as he has been convicted in multiple scams and he is serving multiple jail terms simultaneously. Although the RJD chief is serving his term in the Birsa Munda jail in Ranchi, he is currently admitted in Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) in Ranchi for treatment.

The court also asked Lalu Prasad to submit his passport, to this his lawyers informed that his passport has already expired.

Lalu Prasad Yadav was convicted in the ₹89.27 lakh Deoghar treasury case in December 2017, and in the next month, he was sentenced to three and half years in jail and fined ₹10 lakh by a CBI court. Lalu Prasad’s advocate Prabhat Kumar said that there are two other cases where the former CM is not granted bail yet. If bail can be obtained in those two cases too, Lalu Prasad Yadav will be out of jail.

Other than the Deoghar case, the RJD chief has been sentenced to five years in jail in Bhagalpur treasury fodder case, five years in jail in Chaibasa treasury fodder scam, and 14 years in jail in Dumka treasury case, while several other fodder scam cases are still being heard by courts. He has already got bail in the Bhagalpur case. Other than the fodder scams, he is also facing probe in Indian Railway tender case, disproportionate asset case, tax evasion and benami properties case, Patna Zoo soil case etc.
