No relief for Lalu Yadav. The Jharkhand High Court today deferred to December 11 hearing on his bail plea in connection with a fodder scam case related to fraudulent withdrawal from Dumka Treasury.

"The next date of the bail plea hearing is December 11. We have been instructed to bring records related to Lalu Prasad ji's half-sentence from the lower court and get it verified before further arguments," advocate Prabhat Kumar, Lalu Yadav's lawyer, told reporters here.

Notably, Yadav was shifted back to Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) from Kelly bungalow (RIMS Director's bungalow) in Ranchi on Thursday.

Yadav was shifted to Kelly bungalow in Ranchi on August 6, after the RIMS authorities had written to Birsa Munda Jail authority seeking his shifting, as the ward where he was receiving treatment was converted into COVID ward.

The RJD leader was admitted to RIMS on August 30, 2018, after he surrendered at Birsa Munda Central Jail on Jharkhand court's orders in the fodder scam.
