Lalu Prasad Yadav Convicted in Fodder Scam Case; RJD to Challenge the Verdict in HC

A special CBI court in Ranchi convicted RJD chief and former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad and 15 others in a case relating to the multi-million rupee fodder scam. The Rashtriya Janata Dal said it will challenge the verdict in the High Court.

The Court acquitted another former Bihar Chief Minister Jagannath Mishra and five others in the case, related to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs. 84.5 lakh from Deoghar district treasury.

The CBI court will announce the quantum of sentence on January 3.

Lalu Prasad yadav was sent Birsa Munda Central Jail. His son and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav was present in court and accompanied his father to the jail campus. Angry RJD workers tried to stop the police vehicle when Lalu Prasad was being taken to jail.

In a series of tweets, Lalu Prasad attacked the BJP over his conviction, accusing the party of playing "dirty politics" to get votes by tarnishing the image of its opponents.

The RJD chief said he would keep on fighting for social causes till his last breath. "To hide its failures, false rhetoric and to get votes, the BJP uses every dirty immoral trick in politics to change the public perception of its opponents," he said.

The court directed that the properties of two accused be attached. The court also asked why the then Deputy Commissioner of Deoghar should not be made as accused.
