Supreme court notice to Lalu Yadav on plea by CBI challenging his bail

In December 2017, Lalu Yadav was sentenced for three and a half years of jail in the Deoghar treasury case.

The supreme court on Friday issued a notice to Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav after a plea was filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation challenging the bail granted by Jharkhand High Court in the Deoghar Treasury case.

A bench presided by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde, Justice BR Gavai, and Justice Surya Kant sought response from Lalu Prasad Yadav on the petition filed by CBI. The plea challenged the 12 July 2019 order of bail to RJD supremo alleging that it erroneously suspended the sentence awarded by the trial court and granted bail to Lalu Yadav.

In December 2017, Lalu Yadav was sentenced for three and a half years of jail in the Deoghar treasury case. His lawyer Prabhat Kumar asserted that Lalu Yadav has already served 26 months of punishment.
