Fodder Scam: The court of Justice Aparesh Kumar Singh of Jharkhand High Court heard the bail petition filed by former Bihar Chief Minister and RJD supremo Lalu Yadav, convicted in the biggest case of fodder scam (illegal withdrawal from Doranda treasury). After hearing the side of the applicant and the CBI, the court granted bail to Lalu Yadav. The court granted bail to Lalu Yadav with a condition. The court has granted bail on submission of a fine of Rs 10 lakh and a surety amount of Rs 10 lakh.
In the light of the court's order on the bail plea filed by RJD supremo Lalu Yadav, convicted in the Doranda Treasury case of fodder scam, the affidavit was filed by the CBI in the Jharkhand High Court earlier on Wednesday. It is said that the CBI had said in its reply that half the sentence of Lalu Prasad, in this case, has not been completed yet. In that case, it would not be appropriate to grant him bail.
Last time it was told on behalf of Lalu Yadav that in the case of illegal withdrawal from Doranda treasury, the period of his custody has been more than 41 months, while half the period of punishment is only 30 months. The court was asked to grant bail based on serving more than half the sentence. Let us tell you that on February 21, the special CBI court sentenced Lalu Yadav to five years in the fodder scam case (withdrawal of 139.35 crores from Doranda treasury). Lalu Yadav had already got bail from the High Court in four cases. Now he has got bail in the fifth case as well.
