Lalu Yadav is hooked up yet again by the Central Bureau of Investigation.
In fact, CBI has moved the Supreme Court against bail granted to RJD chief and ex CM of Bihar Lalu Prasad Yadav by Jharkhand High Court in the Doranda treasury case related to the fodder scam.
When the CBI’s appeal came up for hearing in the top court,the Supreme Court agreed to list the appeals filed by CBI on August 25.
The CBI has challenged orders of Jharkhand High Court granting bail to RJD president Lalu Prasad in four cases relating to multi-crore fodder scam (Dumka, Chaibasa, Doranda, Deogarh treasuries).
A special CBI court had held Lalu Prasad Yadav guilty in the Doranda treasury case related to the fodder scam in February this year.
The fodder scam refers to illegal withdrawals worth Rs 950 crore from various government treasuries for fictitious expenditure on fodder and other requirements for cattle during Lalu Prasad Yadav's term as Bihar chief minister.
Of the 99 accused in the Doranda treasury case, 24 were acquitted while three-year jail terms were pronounced for 46 accused last week itself.
Lalu Prasad Yadav, 74, was earlier sentenced to 14 years in jail in four other cases related to Dumka, Deoghar and Chaibasa treasuries in Jharkhand
